Marco Kosonen Quotes

"Oli vielä paikkoja ja asioita jotka halusin nähdä ja kokea, eikä minulla ollut mitään syytä antaa periksi ja jättää niitä elämättä, kun kerran kondistakin vielä riitti.

Maggie Macnab Quotes

"Design is a fundamental human activity, relevant and useful to everyone. Anything humans create—be it product, communication or system—is a result of the process of making inspiration real. I believe in doing what works as circumstances change: quirky or unusual solutions are often good ones. Nature bends and so should we as appropriate. Nature is always right outside our door as a reference and touch point. We should use it far more than we do."

Mindee Arnett Quotes

"He didnt know if it was real, if freedom was something you could earn or win after a long, hard fight, or if it was just an illusion. But he decided it didnt matter. Only this mattered. This moment right here, surrounded by the people he cared about. And he realized this was the paradise his parents had meant when they named this ship."

Quotes About Helping Best Friends

"So why havent you called?" I ask her now.She looks uncomfortable. "I told you," she says, twirling the end of her braid around her finger. "School stuff.""Bullshit." She looks at me and opens her mouth, probably to lie again. But then she changes her mind. "I didnt know what to say." Her voice catches, so I know shes telling the truth. "And besides, you didnt call me, either." "Because you didnt call me!" Doesnt she know that the person who got kicked out of school (me) doesnt have to call the one who didnt(her)? She should have called to check up on me, to see how I was doing. She should have come over with lemonades and ice cream, keeping me company, helping me nurse my broken heart. Thats what best friends do. Its so common its cliché." - Author: Lauren Barnholdt
