Videotape implodes indigenous data." - Paul Ryan

Those who have the truth would not be packaging and selling it, so anyone who is selling it, really does not possess it." - Peace Pilgrim

I don't know why it's not more like it is in the movies, why things don't come out neatly and lessons can't be learned when you're in the mood for learning them, why love and grace often come in such motley packaging." - Anne Lamott
