Quotes of Note
"Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity we shall harness the energies of love.
Then for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. "
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
"The human race's prospects of survival were far better when we were defenseless against tigers than they are today when we have become defenseless against ourselves."
Arnold Toynbee, British Historian
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.
Will Rogers, humorist (1879-1935)
