I believe that 95% of the world is like that. Then another 3% is something I can't understand. The 1% is me understanding everything else and the other 1% is me just giving the **** up on it.

Well, sometimes I change the number depending on how I'm feeling that day... So, it could be more or less, also depending on who you are... And that is something else that adds to the confusing and awkwardness of the world.

Steve Jobs
The problem with the Internet startup craze isn’t that too many people are starting companies; it’s that too many people aren’t sticking with it. That’s somewhat understandable, because there are many moments that are filled with despair and agony, when you have to fire people and cancel things and deal with very difficult situations. That’s when you find out who you are and what your values are.

So when these people sell out, even though they get fabulously rich, they’re gypping themselves out of one of the potentially most rewarding experiences of their unfolding lives. Without it, they may never know their values or how to keep their newfound wealth in perspective.

Theodore Roosevelt
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Charles Eames
The details are not the details. They make the design.

Albert Einstein
The Universe is difficult to comprehend because it is obvious.

Oscar Wilde
A cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

I like it when songs develop in some way. Four minutes usually isn't enough time for something to develop musically.

Donald Fagen

We've got some very good things to do without screwing around with sleeves.

Walter F. Ulmer

If you operate a TV or radio station, you have to have a license. It has nothing to do with fundamental freedom. It has to do with protection of the average citizen against abuses.

Robert Cailliau

It's hard to regulate the speed at which you can achieve something creative and emotional.

Carol Kane

My parents came to this country after World War II, Jews from Czechoslovakia who had survived Auschwitz and Dachau. They settled with my sister in rural Ohio in the 1950s, where my dad became the town doctor and I was born.

Julie Salamon

“Why can’t men communicate? (Because they had to be quiet on the hunt.) Why do women communicate so well? (Because they had to call out to one another where the fruits and berries were.) Why can men never find things around the house? (Because they have a narrow field of vision, useful in tracking prey.) Why can women find things so easily? (Because in protecting the nest they were used to scanning a wide field.) Why can’t women parallel-park? (Because low testosterone inhibits spatial ability.) Why won’t men ask for directions? (Because asking for directions is a sign of weakness, and hunters never show weakness.) This is where we are today. Men and women, tired of being the same, want to be different again.”
― Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
― James Madison, The Constitution of the United States of America

“sometimes I feel like everyone else is carrying a bucket of water but I’m trying to carry an ocean. its very hard. sometimes I would rather not carry my ocean, even if it meant I couldn’t be alive.”
― Heidi Cullinan, Carry the Ocean

“some people don't understand the promises they're making, when they make them.”
― John Green, John Green – The Fault in Our Stars and An Abundance of Katherines

“I live because I have to. You will hurt, you will bleed, you will be betrayed as I have been betrayed. You will survive. And you must learn to control your power.”

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: "Lord of the Rings" and "Atlas Shrugged". One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs."
- Paul Krugman

Yep.
I think I posted it in this thread before I decided to use it as my sig.
And now that it no longer is, I posted it again.

I am afraid of dying now again...

Gonna send you the story via pm though. Its a bit longer. If someone else is interested why she broke up with me dont hazard to ask.
