"What is the feeling when you're driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -it's the too huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies." "The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you’re not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job, ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don’t take it personally when they say ‘no’ - they may not be smart enough to say yes." - Keith Olberman "To achieve all that is possible, we must attempt the impossible. To be as much as we can be, we must dream of being more." "I'm impervious to poo, snot, urine, vomit. You can't get me. You cannot break me down." But then they danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" -- Kerouac "If you don't ask, the answer's always no." Unknown. "It is what it is." "Behold the turtle: He only makes progress when he sticks his neck out." Unless it's mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn't be one of them. - Meet Joe Black "There's no evidence whatsoever that men are more rational than women. Both sexes seem to be equally irrational."
