"If youre a content brand, you have to be in every place your audience is. Sometimes your audience is on the couch and wants to watch a 30-minute show, and sometimes theyre checking their Facebook feed and want to see something thats only a minute long."

John Wyatt Quotes

"There is a level of consciousness between sleeping and fully wakening when the worries of the day have not settled upon us; the body is stilled, and the senses wholly receptive. If the sun is bright, there is pure silence, or the birds are beginning to sing, this shining level of consciousness can come to be the nearest we will get to paradise this side of our quietus, Every day should begin so, This is no dream. This is the reality. The world outside is beautiful. We do our best to hide it. We cover it. We push it father back. The ugliness we make ourselves. We originate our own worries. We put on our own shackles; build our prisons. We can only glimpse the golden reality, briefly, through our tiny barred windows."

Meridel Le Sueur Quotes

"The people are a story that never ends,A river that winds and falls and gleams erect in many dawns;Lost in deep gulleys, it turns to dust, rushes in the spring freshet,Emerges to the sea. The people are a story that is a long incessantComing alive from the earth in better wheat, Percherons,Babies, and engines, persistent and inevitable.The people always know that some of the grain will be good,Some of the crop will be saved, some will return andBear the strength of the kernel, that from the bloodiest yearSome survive to outfox the frost."

Quotes About Large Numbers

"One question that especially intrigues me is exactly when humpbacks started coming to Hawaii and why. In artwork and oral histories of ancient Hawaiians there is no record of humpback whales being there, and there is no evidence that humpbacks were there in large numbers in the mid-1800s during the heyday of whaling. The whalers who provisioned in Hawaii in the winter couldnt have overlooked the numbers of whales that are in Hawaii now. We really dont know what happened, but everything points to a recent colonization of humpbacks. (p.162)." - Author: Charles Flip Nicklin
