An American monkey, after getting drunk on brandy, would never touch it again, and thus is much wiser than most men.
Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.
Clear thinking requires courage rather than intelligence.
One of the lessons learned during the Vietnam War was that the depiction of wounded soldiers, of coffins stacked higher than their living guards, had a negative effect on the viewing public. The military in Iraq specifically banned the photographing of wounded soldiers and coffins, thus sanitizing this terrible and bloody conflict.
Walter Dean Myers

I want a happy marriage and whatever it takes to achieve that. But I think the main prerequisite would have to be respect. He would have to respect me and vice-versa. And, that would be more important than being in love. I think respect really goes a long way. And he would have to keep me happy. And he'd have to be very, very, secure.
You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
After all is said and done, more is said than done.

The glory is being happy. The glory is not winning here or winning there. The glory is enjoying practicing, enjoy every day, enjoying to work hard, trying to be a better player than before.
John F. Kennedy
