Comet (movie)

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)

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

Google is great at helping us find what we know we want, but not at finding what we don't know we want.

Eli Pariser

Collective thinking is usually short-lived. We`re fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruction.

Suzanne Collins

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.
