In love, somehow, a man`s heart is always either exceeding the speed limit, or getting parked in the wrong place.

Helen Rowland

Stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps. Our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourself down for fear of getting hurt. Because that`s What New Year`s is all about. Getting another chance. A chance to forgive. To do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And to stop worrying about "what if" and start embracing what will be. So when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop let`s remember to be nice to each other. Kind to each other. And not just tonight, but all year long.

New Year`s Eve (movie)

We all want happiness for our children, but they don`t have to be happy about everything all the time. Life must include sadness, and there`s peace and truth to be found in sadness. The best times are not always the happiest times, but the times spent in the flow, the times spent getting things done, the times spent living.

Penn Jillette

You can’t afford the house of your dreams. That’s why it is the house of your dreams. So either find a way of getting it (you'll find the means), or be satisfied with dissatisfaction.

Paul Arden

You know, people say that being married is the challenge. I say the challenge is getting married. Once you get through that, the rest is easy.

Numb3rs (movie)

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

We philosophers are mistake specialists. (I know, it sounds like a bad joke, but hear me out.) While other disciplines specialize in getting the right answers to their defining questions, we philosophers specialize in all the ways there are of getting things so mixed up, so deeply wrong, that nobody is even sure what the right questions are, let alone the answers. Asking the wrongs questions risks setting any inquiry off on the wrong foot. Whenever that happens, this is a job for philosophers! Philosophy - in every field of inquiry - is what you have to do until you figure out what questions you should have been asking in the first place.

Daniel Dennett

If the giver`s goal is to change behavior, it`s not enough to give the healthy thing - bran, let`s say - that you want them to eat. You also must give more bran than the recipient currently eats, that is, when he`s getting by without a grant. Any amount of bran he`s already eating - up to the amount of the grant - becomes cash, since he can substitute the gift bran for purchased bran, freeing up cash for anything else he might buy.

Joel Waldfogel

Whenever you’re looking for a solution, you are feeling positive emotion - and whenever you’re looking at a problem, you’re feeling negative emotion, which, as you know, never gets us anywhere. But once you take the focus off yourself and your wants, and instead turn it toward how getting what you want might also benefit someone else, well then, you can’t help but succeed.

Alyson Noel

Christmas: it`s not the giving, it`s not the getting, it`s the loving.

A Garfield Christmas Special (movie)

The glory of science is, that it is freeing the soul, breaking the mental manacles, getting the brain out of bondage, giving courage to thought, filling the world with mercy, justice, and joy.

Robert G. Ingersoll

That woman isn`t even worth getting jealous about. If you`re doing this to push me away, you don`t have to. My feelings are my own - I never forced them on you. If you still want to push me away, then at least date someone good enough that I can accept it. I`ll get properly jealous then.

City Hunter (movie)

One key to successful group decisions is getting people to pay much less attention to what everyone else is saying.

James Surowiecki

It is important to have fun in life, of course. But when you're out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning. Just remember that.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Valentine's Day is not about getting a fistful of diamonds or huge bouquets of overpriced flowers. No, indeed. This is a day to remember and to celebrate love.
