William J. Clinton
The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.

Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy.
This is what people don't understand: obesity is a symptom of poverty. It's not a lifestyle choice where people are just eating and not exercising. It's because kids - and this is the problem with school lunch right now - are getting sugar, fat, empty calories - lots of calories - but no nutrition.
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

E. O. Wilson
If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress.

Just as we teach our children how to ride a bike, we need to teach them how to navigate social media and make the right moves that will help them. The physical world is similar to the virtual world in many cases. It's about being aware. We can prevent many debacles if we're educated.
Amy Jo Martin

We're losing social skills, the human interaction skills, how to read a person's mood, to read their body language, how to be patient until the moment is right to make or press a point.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
