Michel de Montaigne
Things present themselves to you, and it's how you choose to deal with them that reveals who you are. We all say a lot of things, don't we, about who we are and how we think. But in the end it's your actions, how you respond to circumstance that reveals your character.

States should have the right to enact laws... particularly to end the inhumane practice of ending a life that otherwise could live.
George W. Bush
There are a lot of people in the animal rights movement who can be very passionate and aggressive, and I applaud people's passion, but when people are judgmental and aggressive, all you end up doing is getting other people to turn away in irritation.

In football, it's the job of the player to play, the coach to coach, the official to officiate. Each guy is charged with upholding his end, nothing more.

A dead end can never be a one way street; you can always turn around and take another road.
I think I have to trust that you end up with the person you're supposed to end up with, and that everything in between is there to teach you stuff.
History warns us that it is the customary fate of new truths to begin as heresies and to end as superstitions.
