It is only in appearance that time is a river. It is rather a vast landscape and it is the eye of the beholder that moves.
Raising children is a creative endeavor, an art rather than a science.
I love out-of-the-way, rugged places. For me, holidays are about the experiences, and the people, and the memories, rather than sitting on a nice beach getting tanned. I try to plant myself where I am and embrace what is there in front of me.
Mathematical reasoning may be regarded rather schematically as the exercise of a combination of two facilities, which we may call intuition and ingenuity.
I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are.
Personally, I rather look forward to a computer program winning the world chess championship. Humanity needs a lesson in humility.

e. e. cummings
Life is so short. I would rather sing one song than interpret the thousand.
