Dwight L. Moody
When you're on the road and moving city to city, when someone isn't there at the end of the night, you feel empty.
What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?

George W. Bush
To me, the glass is always half full, never half empty.

Make an empty space in any corner of your mind, and creativity will instantly fill it.
