It's exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness

It's exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.
-- Andrienne Rich

I think one's feelings waste themselves in words

I think one's feelings waste themselves in words, they ought all to be distilled into actions and into actions which bring results. -- Florence Nightengale

Something's soon to come over you

Something's soon to come over you,
You just can't please the world and yourself.
You gotta start doing what's right for you
'Cause life is being happy yourself.
-- T. Jackson, J. Jackson, M. Jackson, M. Jackson, and R. Jackson, "Bless His Soul"

Software is like entropy.

Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e. it always increases. -- Norman R. Augustine

All warfare is based on deception.

All warfare is based on deception. Therefore, when capable, feign incapacity; when active, inactivity. When near, make it appear that you are far away; when far way, that you are near. Offer the enemy a bait to lure him; feign disorder and strike him. When he concentrates, prepare against him; where he is strong, avoid him. Anger his general and confuse him. Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance. Keep him under a strain and wear him down. When he is united, divide him. Attack where he is unprepared; sally out when he does not expect you.

Dreams never hurt anybody

Dreams never hurt anybody if you keep working right behind the dreams to make as much of them become real as you can. -- Frank W. Woolworth

The world of the known and the not yet known is bridged by wonderment

The world of the known and the not yet known is bridged by wonderment.
But wonderment happens largely in a situation where the child's world is
separate from the adult world, where children must seek entry through
their questions...As media merge the two worlds...the calculus of
wonderment changes. Curiosity is replaced by cynicism, or even worse,
arrogance. We are left with children who rely not on authoritative
adults but on news from nowhere. We are left with children who are given
answers to questions they never asked. We are left, in short, without
children.

Battle not with monsters

Battle not with monsters,
lest ye become a monster,

and if you gaze into the abyss,
the abyss gazes also into you.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche

Ability is what you're capable of doing.

Ability is what you're capable of doing.
Motivation determines what you do.
Attitude determines how well you do it.
-- Lou Holtz - as stolen from Readers Digest

If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.

If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.
-- Gail Sheehy
