"The man who never weakens when things are against him will grow stronger and stronger until all things will delight to be for him. He will finally have all the strength he may desire or need.

In this connection it is well to remember that we gradually grow into the likeness of that which we think of the most.

Helicopters named after a people that had been ethnically cleansedin the United States less than one hundred years previously. Sixteen lane highways across the sacred burial grounds. Yee-hah." - Author: Craig Ferguson

"A thread from everyone, and the naked will have a shirt." There is no beggar but has his thread of cotton, and he will not grudge it to a naked man - no, nor even to a fully dressed one; but will bestow it on the first comer.

Art tells gorgeous lies that come true." - Author: Hakim Bey
