Where`d the days go? When all we did was play
And the stress that we were under wasn`t stress at all
Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall.

Paolo Nutini

In the past the warring nations
Did not follow any precept:
The strong plundered what he could, and
Everything he looted, he kept.

JŠnos Arany

I did not believe in the underlying goodwill of men or the unspoken sisterhood of women.

Charlaine Harris

It doesn't matter what you did or where you were, it matters where you are and what you're doing.

Steve Maraboli

How would your life change if your actions did all the talking and all you used your mouth for was to say please and thank you?

Steve Maraboli

After all that had happened, how could I miss him? But I did. I did.

Sarah Dessen

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

What did my fingers do before they held him? What did my heart do, with its love?

Sylvia Plath

A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.

Muhammad Ali

I`ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Maya Angelou

What did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think. I`ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.

Jonathan Safran Foer

I don`t think I`ve mastered anything. I`m still wrestling with the same frustrations, the same issues, the same problems as I always did. That`s what life is like.

Harrison Ford

It is not long in historical terms since Christian priests were burning people at the stake if they did not believe that wine turns to blood when a priest prays over it, and that the earth sits immovably at the universe`s centre, or [...] since they were whipping people and slitting their noses and ears for having sex outside marriage [...]. To this day adulterers are stoned to death in certain Muslim countries; if the priests were still on top in the once-Christian world, who can say it would be different?

A. C. Grayling

Besides the obvious difference, there was not much distinction between losing a best friend and losing a lover: it was all about intimacy. One moment, you had someone to share your biggest triumphs and fatal flaws with; the next minute, you had to keep them bottled inside. One moment, you`d start to call her to tell her a snippet of news or to vent about your awful day before realizing you did not have that right anymore; the next, you could not remember the digits of her phone number.

Jodi Picoult

If history and science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth. The human mind evolved to believe in the gods. It did not evolve to believe in biology. Acceptance of the supernatural conveyed a great advantage throughout prehistory, when the brain was evolving. Thus it is in sharp contrast to biology, which was developed as a product of the modern age and is not underwritten by genetic algorithms. The uncomfortable truth is that the two beliefs are not factually compatible. As a result those who hunger for both intellectual and religious truth will never acquire both in full measure.

Edward O. Wilson
