Mark Zuckerberg

Some people believe that a persons spirit is captured when they are photographed. I invite those of you who dont believe that to take a photograph of someone you love a stab it repeatedly with a pair of scissors. Maybe they do capture something of the soul.

Derren Victor Brown

Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, dont blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Louis de Bernieres

Niggas wanna kick it but no I dont play soccer.

Lil Wayne

I dont know if I wanted to top myself or if I just wanted someone to hug me.

Nigel Benn

Im not an aspiring rapper, Im not a gang member, Im not a dope dealer, I dont have multiple babies mommas. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me.

Christopher Jordan Dorner

I obey the Commandments, the sensible ones. Where they dont know what theyre talking about I ignore them. I keep thinking about the story of the two old women in church listening to the priest discoursing on the dynamics of the married state. At the end of the sermon one turns to the other and says, I wish I knew as little about it as he does.

Donald Barthelme

Politics is a lot like sex - if you want something, you have to ask for it, if theyre not doing it right youve got to speak up and show them and if you still dont get what you want, then there is nothing wrong with doing it yourself.

Jennifer Beals

We dont need any more heroes; we just need someone to take out the recycling.

Banksy

Graphic designers are, by and large selfish and spoiled. They stubbornly control and individually design things that are generally smaller than them, perfecting to a level appreciated only by people like them. They dont share and play well with others.

Wayne Hunt

I dont think it is true - as some commentators suggest - that France is going through an identity crisis, but there is an element of that.

Peter Mandelson

we wouldn't ask why a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals, in turn, we would all celebrate its tenacity, we would all love its will to reach the sun, well, we are the roses, this is the concrete and these are my damaged petals, dont ask me why, thank god, and ask me how.

Tupac Shakur

Hugs are part of everybody life for me. Ill hug all sorts of people- I dont worry about it looking unmanly or whatever. I think physical human contact is one of the things that makes living worthwhile.

Kurt Angle

I dont know the rules of grammar. If youre trying to persuade people to do something or buy something, it seems to me you should use their language.

David Ogilvy

One of the fundamental differences between the Victim Orientation and this one [Creator] is where you put your focus of attentionFor Victims, the focus is always on what they dont want: the problems that seem constantly to multiply in their lives. They dont want the person, condition, or circumstance they consider their Persecutor, and they dont want the fear that leads to fight, flee or freeze reactions, either. Creators, on the other hand, place their focus on what they do want. Doing this, Creators still face and solve problems in the course of creating outcomes they want, but their focus remains fixed on their ultimate vision.

David Emerald

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. Lovers dont finally meet somewhere. Theyre in each other all along.

Rumi

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything its cracked up to be. Thats why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you dont risk anything, you risk even more.

Erica Jong

First meditate, be blissful, then much love will happen of its own accord. Then being with others is beautiful and being alone is also beautiful. Then it is simple, too. You dont depend on others and you dont make others dependent on you. Then it is always a friendship, a friendliness. It never becomes a relationship, it is always a relatedness. You relate, but you dont create a marriage. Marriage is out of fear, relatedness is out of love. You relate; as long as things are moving beautifully, you share. And if you see that the moment has come to depart because your paths separate at this crossroad, you say good-bye with great gratitude for all that the other has been to you, for all the joys and all the pleasures and all the beautiful moments that you have shared with the other. With no misery, with no pain, you simply separate.

Osho

Dont buy into the idea that women arent strong enough to do anything they want on their own.

Cher

Dont buy into the idea that women arent strong enough to do anything they want on their own.

Cher

Most people think themselves kind enough, but rather like a magician thinking he is fooling an audience who can see through his trick, we are the worst judges of the effect we have on others. True, we can mentally point out various kindnesses we have committed and those pleasant aspects of ourselves. Yet by doing so, we ignore the real test cases: how we behave under pressure, how nice we are to people we dont like, how we deal with other people who seem determined to not live up to our unrealistic expectations.

Derren Victor Brown

Well, welcome to your very own DVD of me, DVB, and Mind Control. If you werent expecting me and thought you were buying Reginald Perrin, then press eject now before you begin vomiting. Otherwise, please, please ensure that you are sitting in an extreme level of comfort, preferably in pre-worn slippers and, I trust, with your extended family around you. If you have seen the film Signs and would like to wear the pointy tin foil hats now would be a good time to put them on you cant be too careful. Well, pphhh, goodness me, er, its been a meteoric rise over these last years. The money and sex are exhausting and I have you the viewer to thank. Thanks. Weve put together some of the pieces from the specials and series in glistening digital format, each pixel hand picked and gently polished and brought to you in wide-sound, surround-screen enjoyment. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as Ill enjoy the royalties from this, which is enormously. If you dont like it and HMV wont take it back because youve got sticky all over it then the disc makes an excellent beer coaster or wheels for a space truck or can be immense fun just putting it on your finger and [waggling it], like that. But I hope you do like it. When I first started developing these techniques I had no idea that they were going to prove at all popular and for all my nancing about and staring Im actually really excited to have a DVD out and cant wait to go and find it in Discount Books & Puzzles next to the Dizzie Gillespie CD box sets and disappointing erotica. I hope you like it and if you do, please go and buy another one.

Derren Victor Brown

All of us can be influenced through psychological techniques. For example, if I say dont think of a black cat what do you do? You think of a black cat because the command think of a black cat was there in the sentence. Techniques like this can be used to influence peoples thoughts, behaviour, even their memory.

Derren Victor Brown

Now you know that your headmistress, Miss Davis, was going to come in here and just check that you were all going to be well behaved. She cant do that because, as many of you probably know, she cant be here today, er, because her pants fell down earlier on. Its not funny. If any of you see her, dont make a fuss because its a bit embarrassing for her, OK? Alright? Its not funny.

Derren Victor Brown

There are people who have the ability to wake up a minute or even seconds before their alarm goes off or to know what time theyve woken up without even looking at a clock. Now, thank God, I dont have to get up in the mornings but the potential of the body to keep such accurate time is remarkable.

Derren Victor Brown

Now for Heavens sake go to bed. Dont worry about how it was done just go straight to bed. Leave the washing-up and get into bed fully clothed. If any of you want to know how any of it was done, please feel free to write in to me at my home address which will come up on the screen in a moment and I will give you a full and honest explanation of anything you may ask.

Derren Victor Brown

I know I dont look like the kinda guy that knows much about women but believe or not I do actually have a girlfriend. Nothing wrong with her. Shes gorgeous. Shes blonde. Shes nineteen. I know nineteens a little bit young but I just fancied a fling with someone much younger one day. I didnt think anything would come of it. Here we are, still together after five years.

Robbie Bonham

You forgot about the house, you forgot about the ring. I remember everything, I just wanna hear you sing. I remember the love, right after the fights. You cant tell me you dont remember those nights. and if I would cry, then you would cry twice. To me you are the brightest star under sunlight. See take away my title, take away my stripes. You give me back my girl and you give me back my life. Give me back my girl and you give me back my life.

Lil Wayne

A dog will make eye contact. A cat will, too, but a cats eyes dont even look entirely warm-blooded to me, whereas a dogs eyes look human except less guarded. A dog will look at you as if to say, What do you want me to do for you? Ill do anything for you. Whether a dog can in fact, do anything for you if you dont have sheep (I never have) is another matter. The dog is willing.

Roy Alton Blount, Jr.

I dont never hav enny trouble in regulating mi own kondukt, but tew keep other pholks straight iz what bothers me.

Henry Wheeler Shaw

Confess: its my profession that alarms you. This is why few people ask me to dinner, though Lord knows I dont go out of my way to be scary.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

I have to say that I dont find South Park very funny. Its not the politics. I always saw it as stoner animation and it just left me cold.

Ted Rall

My secret ambition was always to provide music for animation films: something with an Indian theme, either a fairy tale or mythological tale or on the Krishna theme. I still have a very deep desire, but these sorts of chances dont always come.

Ravi Shankar

Cultivate friendships. If you dont have time to cultivate all of them, plow under every fifth one and collect your bonus.

Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen

I fully realize that every promise I make, the Republicans will double and the Democrats will redouble. They think this will make me vulnerable, but they dont know I have some tricks up my sleeve, along with a box of raisins to munch on while Im waiting for the returns to come in.

Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen

Presidents are made, not born. Thats a good thing to remember. Its silly to think that Presidents are born, because very few people are 35 years old at birth, and those who are wont admit it. So if youre only 16 dont be discouraged, because its only a phase and theres nothing wrong with you that you wont outgrow.

Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen

Men have periods, too... they just dont bleed.

Tori Amos

Ankier is anxious to avoid what she calls the Anna Kournikova syndrome I realise that a lot of the media attention Ive got is because I dont look horrible, but that can bring attention you dont want.

Jo Ankier

Instead of this, I tell what I hope will pass as truth. A blunt thing, not lovely. The truth is seldom welcome, especially at dinner, though I am good at what I do. My trade is courage and atrocities. I look at them and do not condemn. I write things down the way they happened, as near as can be remembered. I dont ask why, because it is mostly the same. Wars happen because the ones who start them think they can win.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

Tattoos are cool because they dont belong on your body, but you put it there to say something about yourself. Much like my rolls of fat. That shit does not belong on a human body. And I put it there to say something about me. I dont like fruit. I dont like it! Long bike ride? Im out. Hot dog eating contest? Im listening.

Dave Attell

I dont think they should be discussing the Bill. It represents the lies of those that took the people into Parliament. The same opportunists are using the GCC to push the Bill through.

Commodore Frank Bainimarama

Sometimes I feel like a beetle crawling through a fusion power plant. I can feel a certain amount, see a certain amount, but I sure as hell dont understand everything.

Gregory Dale Bear

I dont know that Ive ever fit in, ever. And I say that not in a bad way. I mean, in some ways, its a relief not to fit in, because you get to look at different sides equally. Like I dont know that I have always found my tribe. My tribe are the people who dont feel like they fit in. And frankly, I think that a lot of people dont feel like they fit in.

Jennifer Beals

These tall and handsome ships, swaying imperceptibly on tranquil waters, these sturdy ships, with their inactive, nostalgic appearance, dont they say to us in a speechless tongue: When do we cast off for happiness?

Charles Baudelaire

If people really want to go, and really try all their lives, I think they will get in; for I dont believe there are any locks on that door, or any guards at the gate. I always imagine it is as it is in the picture, where the shining ones stretch out their hands to welcome poor Christian as he comes up from the river.

Alcott, Louisa May

I may not be walking with you all the way, or even much of the way, as I walk with you now. Dont be angry with me if I am not there in person, alive and well, when you need me. I would like nothing more than to be with you always. Do not feel sorry for me if I am gone. When we were together, I loved you deeply and you gave me so much happiness I can never repay you. Camera, wherever I am when you feel sick at heart and weary of life, or when you stumble and fall and dont know if you can get up again, think of me. I will be watching and smiling and cheering you on.

Arthur Robert Ashe, Jr.

A few years ago, you seemed worried that perhaps a lack of emotion was a weakness in your stories. A constant worry. Im still worried. I tell my students that one of the things readers want, and deserve, is a certain amount of blood on the floor. I dont always produce it. Probably a function of being more interested in other parts of the process.

Donald Barthelme

...I think there are two devices that have clearly had an enormous impact on language. One is television. I dont wish to blame television for all the faults of the world, but it has had a vulgarizing effect. The other is the telephone, because we dont write letters anymore. I dont write lettersI dont even write business letters. I call up on the telephone. When people dont write letters, language deteriorates. Do you keep a journal? I keep a workbook with stray pieces of paper with things written on them. A kind of mulch pile.

Donald Barthelme

The editor of this catalog asked me to make a statement about my work. I dont have much to write: - Be a child of your age. - Be naturalistic against your own ego. - Be matter-of- fact toward your inner visions. - My love is dedicated to the four great masters of masculine mysticism: Mleskirchener (church-painters / muralists, fh), Grnewald, Breughel and Van Gogh.

Max Beckmann

The laws of art are eternal and dont change at all, as the moral laws dont change in human beings. (in discussion with Franz Marc who demanded in 'Der Blaue Reiter' around 1912 a new art, in relation to its own - changing - time).

Max Beckmann

This place, if I could describe this place, no place around me, theres no end to me, I dont know what it is, it isnt flesh, it doesnt end, its like air

Samuel Beckett

What they were most determined for me to swallow was my fellow creatures. In this they were without mercy. I remember little or nothing of these lectures. I cannot have understood a great deal. But I seem to have retained certain descriptions, in spite of myself. They gave me courses on love, on intelligence, most precious, most precious. They also taught me to count, and even to reason. Some of this rubbish has come in handy on occasions, I dont deny it, on occasions which would never have arisen if they had left me in peace. I use it still, to scratch my arse with.

Samuel Beckett

I dont like animals. Its a strange thing, I dont like men and I dont like animals. As for God, he is beginning to disgust me.

Samuel Beckett

I knew it would soon be the end, so I played the part, you know, the part of how shall I say, I dont know.

Samuel Beckett

Yes, I dont know why, but I have never been disappointed, and I often was in the early days, without feeling at the same time, or a moment later, an undeniable relief.

Samuel Beckett

Memories are killing. So you must not think of certain things, of those that are dear to you, or rather you must think of them, for if you dont there is the danger of finding them, in your mind, little by little.

Samuel Beckett

I dont blame you for writing of me as you have. You had to believe other stories, but then I dont know if any one would believe anything good of me anyway.

Henry McCarty

Giv every one you meet, my boy, the time ov day and halff the road, and if that dont make him civil dont waste enny more fragrance on the cuss.

Henry Wheeler Shaw

I know a lot before a start an action. I know a lot about the necessity of the general idea of sculpture, but I dont know anything about the process in which the action will run. When the actions runs, my preparation works, because I am prepared to do a thing without knowing where it goes. You see, it would be a very uninteresting thing it would have nothing to do with art if it were not a new experiment for which I have no clear concept. If I had a clear concept of solving the problem, I would then speak about the concept and it wouldnt be necessary to make an action. Every action, every artwork for me, every physical scene, drawings on the blackboard, performance, brings a new element in the whole, an unknown area, an unknown world.

Joseph Beuys

But one is forced to translate thought into action and action into object.. ..I am not a teacher who tells his students only to think. I say: act; do something: I ask for result. It may take different forms. It can have the form of sound, or someone can do a book, make a drawing or a sculpture. I dont care..

Joseph Beuys

I dont want to be an alarmist, but I think that the Younger Generation is up to something.... I base my apprehension on nothing more definite than the fact that they are always coming in and going out of the house, without any apparent reason.

Robert Charles Benchley

Be honest with yourself, with your colleagues and with me although you dont have to be brutal about it.

Samuel Richard

I dont know whether you've ever looked into a miner's eyes for any length of time, that is. Because it is the loveliest blue you've ever seen. I think perhaps that's why I live in Ibiza, because the blue of the Mediterranean, you see, reminds me of the blue of the eyes of those Doncaster miners.

Alan Bennett

People in debt become hopeless and hopeless people dont vote. They always say that that everyone should vote but I think that if the poor in Britain or the United States turned out and voted for people that represented their interests there would be a real democratic revolution.

Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn

I dont think artists should be sponsored. You should not rely on grants. You either make a success of your art or you dont. I worked as an artist for a number of years without making much money I have never had any financial backing in that way. Things are now very good for me but for a lot of the time things were not.

Sir Peter Thomas Blake

Dont you pretend that im not alive my bones never ache unless shes nearby where is your face in a safe of dead tongues i can see your reflection in your totem first born i suspect youve been carrying a pack of wolves i regret not killing you while i had the chance maybe i will always haunt you mark the somnolence with truth better hang your dead palace than have a living home to lose in the river ganges god damns my name dont let these hands sharpen your eyes a rasp of tails

Cedric Bixler-Zavala

When youre ready, just say youre ready. When all the baggage just aint as heavy, and the parties over, just dont forget me.

Drake

I am what everybody in my past dont want me to be.

Drake

But get it while youre here boy, cause all that hype dont feel the same next year boy.

Drake

You cant say youre happy either. You dont even smile for me.-

Drake

Thats why I pick and choose. I dont get shit confused. I got a small circle. Im not with different crews. We walk the same path, but got on different shoes. Live in the same building, but we got different views.

Drake

You know good and well that you dont want a problem like that, you gon make someone around me catch a body like that. Ohhh, dont do it! Please dont do it. Cause one of us goes in and we all go through it. And Drizzy got the money, so Drizzy gonna pay it. Those my brothers, I aint even gotta say it, thats just something they know.

Drake

Wrong way down a one-way, women dont get saved round me even on a Sunday.

Drake

If I was in a room and someone yelled HEY BITCHES I would never turn around cause I just dont fit the description.

Drake

When the lights dont glow the same way that they used to and I finally get a moment to myself, I will realize you were everything Im missing and youll tell me youre in love with someone else.

Drake

Cause I was stayin home when they was having fun. So please dont be surprised when they announce that I won.

Drake

Dont know why it happens every time we alone. But here we are again and I swear Im in my zone. So Imma sip this drink until that muhfucker gone, then you go get undressed and we gon get it on.

Drake

Truth over fame, you know I respect the blatant shit. When I hear em talkin, I just dont know what to make of it. Hate is so familiar to me, Im slowly embracing it. Doesnt come natural, bear wit me it could take a bit.

Drake

Oh you wanna be a muhfuckin funny guy? Dont make me break your Kevin Hart boy.

Drake

I am now even more persuaded of the urgent need to study why Socrates was accused. The dislike of philosophy is perennial, and the seeds of the condemnation of Socrates are present at all times, not in the bosoms of pleasure-seekers, who dont give a damn, but in those of high-minded and idealistic persons who do not want to submit the aspirations to examination.

Allan David Bloom

As it stands, philosophy is just another humanities subject, rather contentless, without a thought of trying to take command in the crisis of the university. Actually it contains less of the exhilarating presence of the tradition in philosophy than do the other humanities disciplines, and one finds its professors least active of the humanists in attempts to revitalize liberal education. Although there was a certain modesty about ordinary language analysis We just help to give you clarity about what you are already doingthere was also smugness: We know what was wrong with the whole tradition, and we dont need it anymore. Therefore the tradition disappeared from philosophys confines. ... [Todays jargon] was produced by philosophy and was in Europe known to have been produced by philosophy, so that it paved a road to philosophy. In America its antecedents remain unknown. We took over the results without having had any of the intellectual experiences leading to them. But the ignorance of the origins and the fact that American philosophy departments do not lay claim to them are in fact just as ignorant of them as is the general publicmeans that the philosophic content of our language and lives does not direct us to philosophy. This is a real difference between the Continent and us. Here the philosophic language is nothing but jargon.

Allan David Bloom

Dont leave something good to find something better. Once you realize you had the best, the best has found better.

Drake

Dont ever forget the moment you began to doubt, transitionin from fittin in to standin out.

Drake

The way you walk, the way you talk, the way you say my name, its beautiful, wonderful, dont'chu you ever change.

Taylor Swift

They dont know where I came from but they know where Im goin.

Lil Wayne

Mama always told me I was crazy and my hoes say Im amazing but I dont listen to a lady.

Lil Wayne

Down like she supposed to be, She gets down low for me, Down like her temperature, cause to me she zero degrees, Shes cold, overfreeze, I got that girl from overseas, Now she my miss America, now can I be her soldier please? Im fighting for this girl, On the battlefield of love, Dont it look like baby cupid sendin arrows from above? Dont you ever leave the side of me, Indefinitely, not probably, and honestly Im down like the economy.

Lil Wayne

And I just wanna show you she dont even know you Shes never gonna love you like I want to And you just see right through me But if you only knew me We could be a beautiful, miracle, unbelievable instead of just invisible.

Taylor Swift

Im just a soul whose intentions are good o lord please dont let me be misunderstood.

Lil Wayne

My parents have always been very respectful of me so Ive always been really respectful of them. My worst fear is to let them down so thats why I dont misbehave.

Taylor Swift

When we meet someone and we fall in love we dont ever imagine that its going to end.

Taylor Swift

Im just a soul whose intentions are good. Oh lord please dont let me be misunderstood

Lil Wayne

Dont you compare me cause there aint nobody near me. They dont see me, but they hear me. They dont fear me, but they feel me.

Lil Wayne

Tell them to keep my name out their mouth, cause they dont know me.

Lil Wayne

They dont make em like me no more. Matter fact they never made em like me before.

Lil Wayne

I think you stand under me if you dont understand me.

Lil Wayne

Dont walk in front of me, I may not follow. Dont walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Drake

Even though it seems youre losing me and things aint what they used to be, dont worry.

Drake

God, to breathe. Air. You dont know what it means until you cannot take a breath

Alice Borchardt

I dont give advice. I cant tell anybody what to do. Instead I say this is what we know about this problem at this time. And here are the consequences of these actions.

Joyce Brothers

There was a great director who directed a picture that I wrote who barred me from the setquite appropriatelyand said, Im sorry, Jim. When youre directing, you dont need to know everything. You need the illusion that you do. And, you know, and I WOULD be therebehind him trying to signal the actors in, you know, in a way I wasnt even aware of.

James L. Brooks

The message of the summoned life is that you dont need to panic if you dont yet know what you want to do with your life. But you probably want to throw yourselves into circumstances where the summons will come.

David Brooks

The nations economy is not just the sum of its individuals. It is an interwoven context that we all share. To stabilize that communal landscape, sometimes you have to shower money upon those who have been foolish or self-indulgent. The greedy idiots may be greedy idiots, but they are our countrymen. And at some level, were all in this together. If their lives dont stabilize, then our lives dont stabilize.

David Brooks

You find most journalists now are on all these social networks. Theyre all about creating they want a direct relationship with their audience, in a way that politicians have been very loathe to do. They dont want to come down to the masses. They still want to be in that fortress, in that ivory tower where they can lecture down to people. They havent really adapted to this two-way communication.

Heather Brooke

I dont write stories to tell readers what to think, or even tell them what I think; I write stories to show me what I think. Writing is always a journey of discovery that way, as suspenseful for me as I hope it will be for the audience.

Lois McMaster Bujold

I dont hate her personally, though if she were enough of a person to be worth such a strong emotion I think I easily could. What I hate is what she represents: the willingness of human beings to be reduced to a slick visual package, like a new television setup-to-the-minute casing, same old works.

John Kilian Houston Brunner

Never. We never lose our loved ones. They accompany us; they dont disappear from our lives. We are merely in different rooms. For example, I cant see who is in the next carriage, but it contains people traveling in the same time as me, as you, as everyone. The fact that we cant speak to them or know whats going on in that other carriage is completely irrelevant. They are there. So what we call life is a train with many carriages. Sometimes were in one, sometimes were in another, and sometimes we cross between them, when we dream or allow ourselves to be swept away by the extraordinary.

Paulo Coelho

It takes a huge effort to free yourself from memory, but when you succeed, you start to realize that youre capable of far more than you imagined. You live in this vast body called the Universe, which contains all the solutions and all the problems. Visit your soul; dont visit your past. The Universe goes through many mutations and carries the past with it. We call each of those mutations a life, but just as the cells in your body change and yet you remain the same, so time does not pass, it merely changes.

Paulo Coelho

Dont be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics dont learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. "Yes" is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.

Stephen Tyrone Colbert

In magicand in lifethere is only the present moment, the now. You cant measure time the way you measure the distance between two points. Time doesnt pass. We human beings have enormous difficulty in focusing on the present; were always thinking about what we did, about how we could have done it better, about the consequences of our actions, and about why we didnt act as we should have. Or else we think about the future, about what were going to do tomorrow, what precautions we should take, what dangers await us around the next corner, how to avoid what we dont want and how to get what we have always dreamed of.

Paulo Coelho
