"The only moment football really stops is with a penalty kick - and that is a moment that is really dramatic. A penalty kick becomes a Western duel. It's two guys facing each other.

Of course, smaller circles within this circle are also possible." - John Kennedy Toole

And perhaps there is no need to do so, either." - Jackie Kennedy

"You may have heard about living today, tomorrow, or "tonow." Tonow, children tell us, is a gift, which is why we call it "the present." Children understand that tonow is the place to live. The present is really the only moment we have. Sure, bad things can happen in the tonow. But when bad things happen to children, they show us the way again, because they know how to be in touch with their feelings and needs." - Bernie Siegel

"When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn't make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking.

For just a moment or two the darkness doesn't seem so bad." - Neil Gaiman

It allows us to have a more flexible identity because we learn to accept ourselves and all of our human experience with more tenderness and openness.

"The greatest lesson I've learned in life is "Who knows what's good or bad?" Things come along that you really want, and they turn out to be the worst thing in the world.
