Quotes of the Moment

"I thought I might become someone else in time, grafted on to something better and stronger. And then I saw that the running away was a running towards. An effort to catch up with my fleet-footed self, living another life in a different way."

Sexing The Cherry, Jeanette Winterson

To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

Elbert Hubbard

Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.

Max Planck

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.

Mark Twain
