Careful. We don't want to learn from this.
Calvin & Hobbes
Life's disappointments are harder to take when you don't know any swear words.
We're so busy watching out for what's just ahead of us that we don't take time to enjoy where we are.
Talking with you is sort of the conversational equivalent of an out of body experience.
History is the fiction we invent to persuade ourselves that events are knowable and that life has order and direction.
If you're a champion, you have to have it in your heart.
(December 21, 1954 - )
I knew my words were strong, but I didn't think they'd have such an impact. As I was speaking, all I could think about were the weeping mothers who had lost their sons and husbands in the war and all the hungry Afghan children waiting to die in the Pakistani refugee camps.
There are many things worth living for, a few things worth dying for, and nothing worth killing for.
