George Bernard Shaw
Never invoke the gods unless you really want them to appear. It annoys them very much.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Aspire rather to be a hero than merely appear one.
Cure yourself of the affliction of caring how you appear to others. Concern yourself only with how you appear before God, concern yourself only with the idea that God may have of you.
Miguel de Unamuno
The very large brain that humans have, plus the things that go along with it - language, art, science - seemed to have evolved only once. The eye, by contrast, independently evolved 40 times.

The therapist ends up feeling frustrated and resentful, and doing all the work.
David D. Burns

J. Donald Walters
