We`ve all had experiences where we were working on something and we knew it was possible and we did those things that were necessary to bring it into reality, we took the responsibility to make it happen. Other people couldn`t see it, lot of people didn`t believe it. You were talked down, you were criticized, people were opposing you but you kept on doing it. It was hard, it was rough, it was difficult but to you it was worth it. And eventually you got to a level you know ain`t nothing can stop me know. I`m on the move. I`m on the move.

Les Brown

I`m naturally an extremely lazy person, so if someone did everything for me, I really think I would do nothing at all.

Keira Knightley

Scientists do not join hands every Sunday and sing "Yes gravity is real! I know gravity is real! I will have faith! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up must come down, down, down. Amen!" If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about the concept.

Dan Barker

In view of the fact that God limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that he did not also limit his stupidity.

Konrad Adenauer

If the sweetness of our lives did not depart, there would be no sweetness at all.

Stephen King

I have no regrets. I wouldn`t have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.

Ingrid Bergman

It takes less time to do a thing right than it does to explain why you did it wrong.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The gods did not reveal all things to men at the start; but as time goes on, by searching, they discover more and more.

Xenophanes

In the mountains, we see a valley covered by a sea of white clouds. The surface of the clouds gleams, immaculate. We start to walk toward the valley. The air becomes more humid, then less clear; the sky is no longer blue. We find ourselves in a fog. Where did the well-defined surface of the clouds go? It vanished. Its disappearance is gradual; there is no surface that separates the fog from the sparse air of the heights. Was it an illusion? No, it was a view from afar. Come to think of it, it`s like this with all surfaces. This dense marble table would look like a fog if I were shrunk to a small enough, atomic scale. Everything in the world becomes blurred when seen close up. Where exactly does the mountain end and where do the plains begin? Where does the savannah begin and the desert end? We cut the world into large slices. We think of it in terms of concepts that are meaningful for us, that emerge at a certain scale.

Carlo Rovelli

What I want, more than anything, is to reach the end of my life with a solid before-and-after picture to reflect back on. To show I did the absolute best that I could with what I was given and that my life was well-lived.

Alyson Noel

I do not fear death. I fear suffering. And I fear old age, though less so now that I am witnessing the tranquil and pleasant old age of my father. I am afraid of frailty, and of the absence of love. But death does not alarm me. It did not scare me when I was young, and I thought at the time that this was because it was such a remote prospect. But now, at sixty, the fear has yet to arrive. I love life, but life is also struggle, suffering, pain. I think of death as akin to a well-earned rest.

Carlo Rovelli

Technology doesn't solve every problem of its own accord. If it did, we wouldn't have millions of people starving to death in a world with an oversupply of food.

Eli Pariser

Did perpetual happiness in the Garden of Eden maybe get so boring that eating the apple was justified?

Chuck Palahniuk

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

If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.

Voltaire
