I am free, and always have been; free to accept my own reality, free to trust my perceptions, free to believe what makes me feel sane even if others call me crazy, free to disagree even if it means great loss, free to seek the way home until I find it. ~Martha Beck~
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that’s all. ~Oscar Wilde~
When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I was not a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out. ~Martin Niemoler~
I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything. ~Mark Twain~
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one. ~George R.R. Martin~
