Quote of the Day:

The whole problem with the world…

Quote of the Day:

Build on failure. Use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. Don't try to forget the mistakes, but don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

Thanks to Martin, Redington & John A.

Quote of the Day:

"We have to abandon the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20 are no longer true at 40 --and half the things he knows at 40 hadn't been discovered when he was 20?"

Hugs for sad Alien fans...

Quote of the Day:

My childhood was very happy, and my parents have been very nice to me. I think that most of the images in my paintings are evil, but you can't say that I'm evil. It's just that evil is much, much more interesting than Paradise...
