"It isn't good to hold on too hard to the past. You can't spend your whole life looking back. Not even when you can't see what lies ahead. All you can do is keep on keeping on, and try to believe that tomorrow will be what it should be-even if it wasn't what you expected." ~Jim Butcher, Death Masks (I'm really trying with this one)

"Time wounds all heels" ~Someone Like You

"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around." ~Love Actually

Love is your name and I wake up with it on my lips.

"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and, as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live." - George Bernard Shaw

These two have had a centering effect on me at certain times in my life:

"Invest in yourself. Material things come to those who have self-actualized."
-- from a post on Craigslist.
"When I breathe my last breath, I will not die, it is the world that will end."
-- unknown philosopher that influenced Ayn Rand. Makes you think, huh?

A couple from my favourite physicist:

"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled."
-- Richard P. Feynman, likely after the Challenger disaster, which Feynman helped investigate.

"I'll never make that mistake again ... of course, you only live one life, and you make all your mistakes, and learn what not to do, and that's the end of you."
-- Richard P. Feynman

One of my own:

"Culture doesn't define us, we define our culture."
--Classy Caveman


And one more just for fun:

"That's it for me! Goodnight everybody!"
-- George Castanza

Just read a really great one in someone's OKC profile:

"We judge others by their actions and ourselves by our intentions."

All generalizations are false, including this one -Mark Twain
