  13. I find snow to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~Carl Reiner

  14. "The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny him with their life style. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable." -- Brennan Manning

  15. “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” -- Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.)

  18. "The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings" -- Dave Weinbaum

  19. "Doctor, I don't think you're going to find this very healthy and clear, but I really would like to stop working forever--never work again, never do anything like the kind of work I'm doing now--and do nothing but write poetry and have leisure to spend the day outdoors and go to museums and see friends. And I'd like to keep living with someone -- maybe even a man -- and explore relationships that way. And cultivate my perceptions, cultivate the visionary thing in me. Just a literary and quiet city-hermit existence."
    -Allen Ginsberg

  20. "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." -- Helen Keller

    Men in Black.

  27. "I don't want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me."

    Frank Costello in The Departed (which is a fantastic film)

  28. "The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear. "

    Stephen King.

  29. “It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.” -- Joseph Campbell

  30. From: "ALICE IN WONDERLAND"
    By: Lewis Carroll

    “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” (Alice)

    “If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.” (The Duchess)

    “Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.” (The Doorknob)

    “It would be so nice if something would make sense for a change.” (Alice)

    “The time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wigs. Calloo, Callay, come run away. With the cabbages and kings.” (The Walrus)

    “I have an excellent idea: Let’s change the subject.” (The March Hare)

    Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea?
    Alice: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more.
    March Hare: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less.
    Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.

    White Rabbit: Your Majesty, members of the jury, loyal subjects, and the King... the prisoner at the bar stands accused of enticing Her Majesty, the Queen of Hearts, into a game of croquet, thereby and with malice of forethought, molesting, tormenting, and otherwise annoying our beloved.
    Queen of Hearts: Never mind all that! Get to the part where I lose my temper.
    White Rabbit: ...thereby causing the Queen to lose her temper.

    Caterpillar: Who are you?
    Alice: This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. I -- I hardly know, sir, just at present -- at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.
    The Duchess: I quite agree with you. And the moral of that is: Be what you would seem to be, or if you'd like it put more simply: Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.
