When a love comes to an end, weaklings cry, efficient ones instantly find another love, and the wise already have one in reserve.

Oscar Wilde

There are two kinds of people: ones that are trying to build their future and ones that are trying to rebuild their past.

Max Payne

Nearly all men are slaves for the same reason that the Spartans assigned for the servitude of the Persians - lack of power to pronounce the syllable, No. To be able to utter that word and live alone, are the only two means to preserve one`s freedom and one`s character.

Nicolas Chamfort

I decided to be happy, it is excellent for one`s health.

Voltaire

The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they`re teaching.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Just as one wouldn`t draw a lasting conclusion about oneself on the basis of a brief experience of indigestion, one needn`t do so on the basis of how one has thought or behaved for vast stretches of time in the past. A creative change of inputs to the system - learning new skills, forming new relationships, adopting new habits of attention - may radically transform one`s life.

Sam Harris

It is better to live in ignorance than with knowledge. Solving the problem is the exciting part, not knowing the answer. Once a conjuring trick is explained it loses its magic. The excitement of a game of football is in not knowing who is going to be the winner. Some people have success and rest on their laurels. The lucky ones continue to live in ignorance.

Paul Arden

A lot of times when people make accusations like that about other people - "Oh, he can't really be doing this for principled reasons, he must have some corrupt, nefarious reason" - they're saying a lot more about themselves than they are the target of their accusations, because those people, the ones who make that accusation, they themselves never act for any reason other than corrupt reasons, so they assume that everybody else is plagued by the same disease of soullessness as they are, and so that's the assumption.

Glenn Greenwald

One of the most important gifts we can give our children is the confidence to say "I don`t know." It`s the foundation from which we begin our investigation of the world: asking questions, taking the necessary time to understand the answers, and searching for new answers when the ones we have in hand don`t seem to work. The feeling of not knowing is also the source of wonder and awe.

Annaka Harris

The stories we hear in childhood are the ones we remember all our lives.

Stephen King

Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking. This is central to its success. Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don`t conform to our preconceptions. It counsels us to carry alternative hypotheses in our heads and see which ones best match the facts. It urges on us a fine balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous skeptical scrutiny of everything - new ideas and established wisdom. We need wide appreciation of this kind of thinking. It works. It`s an essential tool for a democracy in an age of change. Our task is not just to train more scientists but also to deepen public understanding of science.

Carl Sagan

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

Nelson Mandela

Evolution results in better answers, not necessarily more complicated ones.

Ray Kurzweil

Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.

Deepak Chopra

Those who have the ability to be grateful are the ones who have the ability to achieve greatness.
