C. S. Lewis
I've been lucky. Opportunities don't often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.
I got quite annoyed after the Haiti earthquake. A baby was taken from the wreckage and people said it was a miracle. It would have been a miracle had God stopped the earthquake. More wonderful was that a load of evolved monkeys got together to save the life of a child that wasn't theirs.
What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have a great respect for incremental improvement, and I've done that sort of thing in my life, but I've always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don't know why.

He stands for what we all feel we would like to be able to stand for, when standing is hardest.
J. Michael Straczynski
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
Leonardo da Vinci
We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.
Any job very well done that has been carried out by a person who is fully dedicated is always a source of inspiration.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca
My sister has been there for me through everything.
Slavery existed before the formation of this Union. It derived from the Constitution that recognition which it would not have enjoyed without the confederation. If the States had not united together, there would have been no obligation on adjoining States to regard any species of property unknown to themselves.
