It`s always darkest before the dawn. When you`re down, there`s no direction but up.

Isaac Asimov

Democracy works only if we citizens are capable of thinking beyond our narrow self-interest. But to do so, we need a shared view of the world we cohabit. We need to come into contact with other peoples' lives and needs and desires. The filter bubble pushes us in the opposite direction - it creates the impression that our narrow self-interest is all that exists. And while this is great for getting people to shop online, it’s not great for getting people to make better decisions together.

Eli Pariser

A wrong turn doesn`t end the journey. If you feel lost, just look at your map and get back on the road. The map will always lead you in the right direction.

Steve Maraboli

Math is like water. It has a lot of difficult theories, of course, but its basic logic is very simple. Just as water flows from high to low over the shortest possible distance, figures can only flow in one direction. You just have to keep your eye on them for the route to reveal itself. That’s all it takes. You don’t have to do a thing. Just concentrate your attention and keep your eyes open, and the figures make everything clear to you. In this whole, wide world, the only thing that treats me so kindly is math.

Haruki Murakami

Before we met, I was as lost as a person could be and yet you saw something in me that somehow gave me direction again.

Nicholas Sparks

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to lead the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau

I believe in no God, no invisible man in the sky. But there is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction. The chain is too powerful and too mysterious for any government to guide. Any man who tells you different either has his hand in your pocket, or a pistol to your neck.

BioShock

Nearly all scientific research leads nowhere - or, if it does lead somewhere, not in the direction it started off.

Peter Medawar

When dealt one of life’s terrible blows - the death of a parent, the end of a relationship, the positive test result, the guilty verdict, the final step off the tall building - there comes a moment of light-headedness, almost of euphoria, as the string which tethers us to our hopes is cut and we bounce off in another direction, briefly powered by the momentum of release.

Joanne Harris

It doesn`t matter what people tell you. It doesn`t matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you`re headed in the exact right direction.

Alice Hoffman

When you`re lost in those woods, it sometimes takes you a while to realize that you are lost. For the longest time, you can convince yourself that you`ve just wandered a few feet off the path, that you`ll find your way back to the trailhead any moment now. Then night falls again and again, and you still have no idea where you are, and its time to admit that you have bewildered yourself so far off the path that you dont even know from which direction the sun rises anymore.

Elizabeth Gilbert

I can`t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

Jimmy Ray Dean

Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.

Oliver Wendell Holmes
