Virginia M Sanders Quotes

"Take a moment and think of something small but significant that youve wanted for decades. Dream about it. Wish for it. Let the dreaming and wishing sink deeply into your being.

Mishka Shubaly Quotes

"If you talk to little kids about drugs, they tell you that drugs make you feel weird and act crazy and hang around with strange people. Getting sober and running long distances has been deeply bizarre, weirder than any drug or combination of drugs Ive tried.

Quotes About Scooters

"If you visit London, youll occasionally cross paths with young men (and less often women) on motor scooters, blithely darting in and out of traffic while studying maps affixed to their handlebars. These studious cyclists are training to become London cabdrivers. Before they can receive accreditation from Londons Public Carriage Office, cabbies-in-training must spend two to four years memorizing the locations and traffic patterns of all 25,000 streets in the vast and vastly confusing city, as well as the locations of 1,400 landmarks. Their training culminates in an infamously daunting exam called "the Knowledge," in which they not only have to plot the shortest route between any two points in the metropolitan area, but also name important places of interest along the way. Only about three out of ten people who train for the Knowledge obtain certification." - Author: Joshua Foer

"Anger is like flowing water; theres nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow.

Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human." - Author: C. JoyBell C.
