It's there, we just forget." - Terry Tempest Williams

If we disconnected and severed our attachments, would we shatter our confinements and expand beyond our shell? Would the world look different? Would we recognize ourselves? Are we the box that we are inside, and to be authentically 'un-contained' would we still be able to exist? This is the irony of containment. As long as we don't push on the walls of our surroundings, we may never know how strong we really are." - Paige Bradley

World-peace conferences would run more smoothly if "a nice cup of tea", or indeed, a samovar were available at the proper time." - Marlene Dietrich

Souls can't move that quickly, and are left behind, and must be awaited, upon arrival, like lost luggage." - William Gibson

That was why." - J M Coetzee

"Then, of course, through the umbilical link we all tumble backwards down the spiralling DNA staircase to one common ancestor in Africa, and before that some bunch of curious monkeys.

Some invisible magnetic pull. Is there a difference between attraction and intention? Where is evolution taking us?" - Russell Brand

Ladies and gentlemen if you have a friend who wants to use their hair dryer in the shower, you let them." - Wil Anderson

"A healthy man, with steady employment, as wood-chopping at fifty cents a cord, and a camp in the woods, will not be a good subjectfor Christianity. The New Testament may be a choice book to him on some, but not on all or most of his days. He will rather go a-fishing in his leisure hours. The Apostles, though they were fishers too, were of the solemn race of sea-fishers, and never trolled for pickerel on inland streams." - Henry David Thoreau

"You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth of falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn't you then first discover how much you really trusted it?" - C S Lewis
