You know how there`s time-based art? Movies, music, plays, it`s all time-based art. There`s a beginning, and a middle and an end. You have to see it from the beginning to the end. You`re restrained to that timeline... That way of experiencing it. But then there`s paintings. No beginning, no middle, no end. You see what you want to see when you want to see it. No restrictions, it`s just there.

Comet (movie)

Knowing you goes down as easily the best thing that`s ever happened to me. Easily. If I were a restaurant, you`d be my special but nobody could order you because I`d just want you to be mine, just all mine.

Comet (movie)

Punk is musical freedom. It`s saying, doing and playing what you want. [...] `Nirvana` means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that`s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.

Kurt Cobain

I don`t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.

Marilyn Monroe

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

One of the big reliefs for the atheist is not having to worry about what to hope, wish, and pray for. Did I want to pray for my mother`s suffering to end? Did I want to hope for her death? I didn`t have to worry about that. I could hope one day that she`d live longer so I could talk to her, and wish the next day that she would die and not have to suffer her paralysis and physical loss any longer. My wishing and hoping were inert; I could let them run wild. I could use them as pure solace.

Penn Jillette

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Dale Carnegie

Three o`clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.

Jean-Paul Sartre

Some morning while you`re eating breakfast and you need something new to think about, though, you might want to ponder the fact that you see your kids across the table not as they are but as they once were, about three nanoseconds ago.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Help, help!
Help I feel life coming closer,
When all I want to do is die.

Marilyn Monroe

If you want to know how your life is going to turn out, you just have to know where you’re heading.

Paul Arden

If you show somebody a piece of your work and you ask them ‘What do you think? ’, they will probably say it’s okay because they don’t want to offend you. Next time, instead of asking if it’s right, ask them what’s wrong. They may not say what you want to hear, but the chances are they will give you a truthful criticism. Truth hurts, but in the long run it’s better than a pat on the back.

Paul Arden

We can`t survive alone, but even if we could, we wouldn`t want to. Without a faction we have no purpose and no reason to live.

Veronica Roth

Most of the biggest catastrophes that we've witnessed rarely come from information that is secret or hidden. It comes from information that is freely available and out there, but that we are willfully blind to, because we can't handle, don't want to handle, the conflict that it provokes. But when we dare to break that silence, or when we dare to see, and we create conflict, we enable ourselves and the people around us to do our very best thinking.
Open information is fantastic, open networks are essential. But the truth won't set us free until we develop the skills and the habit and the talent and the moral courage to use it. Openness isn't the end. It's the beginning.

Margaret Heffernan

Through want of enterprise and faith men are where they are, buying and selling, and spending their lives like serfs.

Henry David Thoreau
