"Our works in stone, in paint, in print, are spared, some of them, for a few decades or a millennium or two, but everything must finally fall in war, or wear away into the ultimate and universal ash - the triumphs, the frauds, the treasures and the fakes.

21. "The vainglory of wishing to understand is dangerous, immoral and, above all, old-fashioned. The modern way – perhaps the final way - is to say: Go forward, without knowing why, as quickly as possible, towards an unknown goal!

To accomplish all one's movements – of the head, the arms, the legs – without ever quite attaining the status of a puppet, but with a certainty that gives one a feeling of rightness: that is what is nowadays held up as the ideal. Be citizens of Universal activity! Forget to be conscious of ourselves! The blind horse gallops without hesitation, not knowing where it is going, not caring where it has been: so let up put out our eyes!"
Author: Remy De Gourmont

Author: Sigourney Weaver
27. "Well, clearly someone you trust isn't really someone you should be trusting," she said without thinking, and regretted it when Terrible glanced at her. He did it fast, just a quick cut of his eyes in her direction and then away again, but she saw it. She felt it. It was starting already. She wished she could say she was surprised, wished she hadn't been waiting for it, expecting it the way she expected rain from black clouds overhead. Nothing in the world was permanent, especially not happiness. She'd always known that. She just wished life would stop proving her right."

"Oh dear, superstition, superstition everywhere we turn."
Author: Terry Pratchett

The true impact you make on people will depend on the time and attention you give every day to teaching those who know less, caring for those who have less, supporting those who are striving and tolerating those who are different than you. Do something every day to make a difference in the lives of others. For more tips, read "The Angel Affect" and join the mission!"
