War is a quarrel between two thieves too cowardly to fight their own battle; therefore they take boys from one village and another village, stick them into uniforms, equip them with guns, and let them loose like wild beasts against each other.

Thomas Carlyle

I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

Margaret Thatcher

We fear violence less than our own feelings. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict.

Jim Morrison

It`s the inspired student that continues to learn on their own. That`s what separates the real achievers in the world from those who pedal along, finishing assignments.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

My mom and dad (and most moms and dads) said that I would never understand how much they loved me until I had my own children. (...) It`s the love you don`t choose, the animal love that gives the reason to live.

Penn Jillette

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.

Benjamin Disraeli

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

Mark Twain

If God created us in his own image, we have more than reciprocated.

Voltaire

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Free will is an illusion. Our wills are simply not of our own making. Thoughts and intentions emerge from background causes of which we are unaware and over which we exert no conscious control. We do not have the freedom we think we have.

Sam Harris

Be your own worst critic. When things go wrong it’s tempting to shift the blame. Don’t. Accept responsibility. People will appreciate it, and you will find out what you’re capable of.

Paul Arden

Meetings are for those with not enough to do. A meeting is a performance, an act to convince people of their own importance. The real players don’t need to act out the meeting game. They roll up their sleeves and get on with the job.

Paul Arden

Good art speaks for itself. That doesn’t mean you have to like it. So the next time you go to an art show, or look at anything for that matter, observe what effect it has on you and try to form your own opinion. That way you become the critic and not a mouthpiece for someone else’s opinions.

You can never pinpoint the exact moment that a species came to be, because it never did. Just like how you used to be a baby and now you're older, but there was no single day when you went to bed young and woke up old. (...) There was no first human. It sounds like a paradox, it sounds like it breaks the whole theory of evolution, but it's really a key to truly understanding how evolution works. Evolution happens like a movie, with frames moving by both quickly and gradually, and we often can't see the change while it's occurring. Every time we find a fossil, it's a snapshot back in time, often with thousands of frames missing in between, and we're forced to reconstruct the whole film. Life is what happens in between the snapshots. Instead of a nice smooth road this is a journey on stepping stones and we give each one their own name.

Joe Hanson
