"I'm not afraid of dying. It's fate. What I'm afraid of is time. I'm afraid of not having enough time to do everything, to get what I want done. I'm afraid that I won't have enough time to find out who I am, my place in this world, and the people who matter to me. I'm afraid of time."
"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first."

You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.

Golda Meir
"the only perfect family is the kind you draw on a piece of paper- the stick kind."
See! This is what happens when you ignore superstitions! They fuck you in the ass! --Liz Bramble
"Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dare to win."

"Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together."
-- Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742 - 1799)
Stone walls do not a prison make, nor iron bars a cage.
