-Ernst Fischer "In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it." -Mohandas Gandhi "We must become the change we want to see in the world." -Socrates "Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of - for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear." -William Wirt "Seize the moment of excited curiosity on any subject to solve your doubts; for if you let it pass, the desire may never return, and you may remain in ignorance." -Jeffrey Rowland "We've always been here and we'll always be here. We are a specific arrangement of particles and this instant is infinite. Did we luck out, or didn't we? The odds against this sentence having ever being typed, much less the odds against you reading it were inconceivable. Smile, because the fact that you're able to is almost impossible to comprehend." -James Carroll "We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things [but] there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper." -Charles Du Bos "The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become." -Hugh Macleod "Part of understanding the creative urge is understanding that it's primal. Wanting to change the world is not a noble calling, it's a primal calling." -Jerry Chin "And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow." -Lois McMaster Bujold "Some prices are just too high, no matter how much you may want the prize. The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart." -Edward Everett Hale "Never bear more than one trouble at a time. Some people bear three kinds - all they have had, all they have now, and all they expect to have." -Marcus Aurelius "Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones." "Only after the last tree has been cut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then man will find that money cannot be eaten." -Cree Indian Prophecy "In a fight between you and the world, pick the world." -Franz Kafka. “Thinking is more interesting than knowing... but less interesting than looking” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. "An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex." -Aldous Huxley. "Susmak kabullenmek değil, cevaptır anlayabiliene...Bil ki, kısa cümleler kuruyorsa insan,uzun yorgunlukları vardır sadece." -Bob Dylan.
