Our feelings of separation from God will diminish as we become more childlike before Him. That is not easy in a world where the opinions of other human beings can have such an effect on our motives.

Henry B. Eyring

Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield

Michael Ian Black

Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing.

I was so poor I dreamt about being just 'regular poor,' not 'poor, poor.'
Usually, there is no equivalent of air traffic control at sea. Some busy areas operate 'traffic separation schemes,' but mostly, ships are treated like cars on roads where there are rules and codes of behavior, and successful, accident-free outcomes depend on everyone respecting them. As on roads, this doesn't always work.
And one of the frustrating parts, but it's an inherent part of our democracy, is we have separation of powers.
