H. L. Mencken
Let's put it this way: there wouldn't be much point in me attending a high-school reunion now because there wouldn't be anybody there. We'd struggle to raise a quorum.
But once you've made a song and you put it out there, you don't own it anymore. The public own it. It's their song.

When you put on a uniform, there are certain inhibitions that you accept.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
We're put here on Earth to learn our own lessons. No one can tell you what your lessons are; it is part of your personal journey to discover them. On these journeys we may be given a lot, or just a little bit, of the things we must grapple with, but never more than we can handle.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
