Ernest Hemingway // "Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry: Worry never fixes anything."
Marilyn Monroe // "Couldn’t we end this interview with what I really want to say? That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody...we are all brothers. If we could end this article saying just that, we’d get down to what we should all be talking about. Please don’t make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe."
James Baldwin // "The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious, one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated."
David Bowie // "And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds; are immune to your consultations, they are quite aware of what they are going through."
Sam Haskins // "A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said 'I love your pictures...they're wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.' He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: 'That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove."
Ian McKellen // "Try and understand what part you have to play in the world in which you live. There’s more to life than you know and it’s all happening out there. Discover what part you can play...then go for it."
Lauren Bacall // "Standing still is the fastest way of moving backwards in a rapidly changing world."
John Lennon // "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."
Ayn Rand // "The man who refuses to judge, who neither agrees nor disagrees, who declares that there are no absolutes and believes that he escapes responsibility, is the man responsible for all the blood that is now spilled in the world. Reality is an absolute, existence is an absolute, a speck of dust is an absolute and so is a human life. Whether you live or die is an absolute. Whether you have a piece of bread or not, is an absolute... There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit."
