Remember, "You're either on the bus, or off the bus."
People think good gets noticed. But only by your friends and relatives.
Great has a chance. And even great has to wait for its moment. Not every classic track was an instant hit. Sometimes you're ahead of the game, the system isn't ready for you. Luck is involved, but you've got to make your own luck, you've got to be involved. It's all about magic.
And everybody knows magic when they see it. Life is about experiencing magic. That's what keeps you doing it. The knowledge that we're open to the incredible. But can you hang in there long enough to get that good?

The guesses we like best, as with so many things we like best, were taught to us in childhood - by people who loved us and wished us well. We are reluctant to criticize those guesses. It is an ultimate act of rudeness to find fault with anything which is given to us in a spirit of love. So a modern, secular education is often painful. By its very nature, it invites us to question the wisdom of the ones we love.
George Santayana says, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" "I've got news for Mr. Santayana: we're doomed to repeat the past no matter what. That's what it is to be alive."

"Coverage is the enemy of understanding"
"The illiterate of the year 2000 will not be the individual who cannot read and write, but the one who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn."

But also, no less surely, each reflects the psychology of an age almost as much as it reflects the state of that age's knowledge."
[the Internet] could remain what it ought to be: just a public instrument. There ought to be efforts -- not just talk but real efforts -- to ensure Internet access, not just for rich people but for everyone.

Keep your thoughts positive; thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive; words become your behaviors.
Keep your behaviors positive; behaviors become your habits.
Keep your habits positive; habits become your values.
Keep your values positive; values become your destiny.
"To see the men without clothes to cover their nakedness, without blankets to lie upon, without shoes… without a house or hut to cover them until those could be built, and submitting without a murmur, is a proof of patience and obedience which, in my opinion, can scarcely be paralleled."
"It does not matter who votes that counts; it is who counts the votes."
"When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong."
There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.

"You too can rule the world. You just have to crush everyone ELSE first! A little crushing music, maestro..."
"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good and just and beautiful."
"If things seem totally under control, you're just not going fast enough."

As far as I can see American Men, have been totally emasculated, they're like slaves, they die like flies . . .

I'll wager you anything you like, if American woman stopped wearing brassiers your whole national economy would collapse overnight.
