Elementary Quotations

You must live life in its very elementary forms. The Mexicans have a very nice word for it: pura vida. It doesn't mean just purity of life, but the raw, stark-naked quality of life. And that's what makes young people more into a filmmaker than academia.
Werner Herzog

I am often amazed at how much more capability and enthusiasm for science there is among elementary school youngsters than among college students.

There are no college courses to build up self-esteem or high school or elementary school. If you don't get those values at a early age, nurtured in your home, you don't get them.
T. D. Jakes

Lauren Potter

Kristin Kreuk
