"Culture is is no longer created by the people. Our stories, once passed from one generation to the next by parents, neighbours and teachers, are now told by distant corporations with "something to sell as well as tell". Brands, products, fashions, celebrities, entertainments- the spectacles that surround the production of culture- are our culture now. Our role is mostly to listen and watch- and then, based on what we have heard and seen, to buy."

-Kalle Lasn, Culture Jam
"Would those of you in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry."
-- John Lennon (1940 - 1980)
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."

-St. Augustine
Never expect anything and you'll never be disappointed.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

-Maurice Setter
What is beautiful is not always good, but what is good is always beautiful.

As we grow up,
we learn that even the one person
that wasn't supposed to ever let you down,
probably will.
You will have your heart broken
probably more than once
and it's harder every time
You'll break hearts too
so remember how it felt when yours was broken
You'll fight with your best friend
You'll blame a new love
for things an old one did
You'll cry because time is passing too fast
and you'll eventually lose someone you love
So take too many pictures
laugh too much
and love like you've never been hurt
because every sixty seconds you spend upset
is a minute of happiness you'll never get back
"I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day."
Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln was once talking with a woman about how the North must treat the South. She disagreed with him, and said that she felt that we must destroy our enemies.
Lincoln replied, "What, madam? Do I not destroy them when I make them my friends?"

"Whoever you are there is always some younger person who thinks you are perfect. There is some work that will never get done unless you do it. There is some one who would miss you if you were gone. And there is a place that you alone can fill." -J.M. Braude

"Very occasionally, if you really pay attention, life doesn't suck." -Joss Whedon
"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort." -Herm Albright

WHATEVER YOU DO, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Alrighty, then you'll want something inspirational. We just got the latest in the series: Chicken Soup For The Condemned To Hell Soul."- Both from "Bald In The Land Of Big Hair" by Joni Rodgers.
