Quote Left Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.

Quote Left 'I cry' Sometimes when I'm alone I Cry, Cause I am on my own. The tears I cry are bitter and warm. They flow with life but take no form I Cry because my heart is torn. I find it difficult to carry on. If I had an ear to confiding, I would cry among my treasured friend, but who do you know that stops that long, to help another carry on. The world moves fast and it would rather pass by. Then to stop and see what makes one cry, so painful and sad. And sometimes... I Cry and no one cares about why. Quote Right
Quote Left Eagerly, musician,Sweep your string,So we may sing,Elated, optative,Our several voicesInterblending,Playfully contending,Not interferingBut co-inhering,For all withinThe cincture of the soundIs holy ground,Where all are Brothers,None faceless Others. Let mortals bewareOf words, forWith words we lie,Can say peaceWhen we mean war,Foul thought speak fairAnd promise falsely,But song is true:Let music for peaceBe the paradigm,For peace means to changeAt the right time,As the World-Clock,Goes Tick and Tock. So may the storyOf our human cityPresently moveLike music, whenBegotten notesNew notes beget,Making the flowingOf time a growing,Till what it could be,At last it is,Where even sadnessIs a form of gladness,Where Fate is Freedom,Grace and Surprise.

Quote Left Oh! Pilot! 'tis a fearful night, There's danger on the deep, I'll come and pace the deck with thee, I do not dare to sleep. Go down, the sailor cried, go down, This is no place for thee; Fear not! but trust in Providence, Wherever thou mayst be. Ah! Pilot, dangers often met We all are apt to slight, And thou hast known these raging waves But to subdue their might. It is not apathy, he cried, That gives this strength to me, Fear not but trust in Providence, Wherever thou mayst be. On such a night the sea engulphed My father's lifeless form; My only brother's boat went down In just so wild a storm; And such, perhaps, may be my fate, But still I say to thee, Fear not but trust in Providence, Wherever thou mayst be. Quote Right
Quote Left Who among us has not, in moments of ambition, dreamt of the miracle of a form of poetic prose, musical but without rhythm and rhyme, both supple and staccato enough to adapt itself to the lyrical movements of our souls, the undulating movements of ou Quote Right
Quote Left The highest form of vanity is love of fame. Quote Right
Quote Left English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? Have you noticed that we talk about certain things only when they are absent? Have you ever seen a horsefull carriage or a strapfull gown? Met a sung hero or experienced requited love? Have you ever run into someone who was combobulated, gruntled, ruly or peccable? And where are all those people who ARE spring chickens or who would actually hurt a fly? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on. Quote Right
Quote Left Inspiration may be a form of super-consciousness, or perhaps of subconsciousness -- I wouldn't know. But I am sure it is the antithesis of self-consciousness. Quote Right
Quote Left The sense of an entailed disadvantage -- the deformed foot doubtfully hidden by the shoe, makes a restlessly active spiritual yeast, and easily turns a self-centered, unloving nature into an Ishmaelite. But in the rarer sort, who presently see their own frustrated claim as one among a myriad, the inexorable sorrow takes the form of fellowship and makes the imagination tender. Quote Right
Quote Left Babylon violated diminishes Alexander; Rome enslaved diminishes Caesar; massacred Jerusalem diminishes Titus. Tyranny follows the tyrant. Woe to the man who leaves behind a shadow that bears his form. Quote Right
Quote Left Wit is the lowest form of humor. Humor Quote Right
Quote Left Crowley had been extremely impressed with the warranties offered by the computer industry, and had in fact sent a bundle Below to the department that drew up the Immortal Soul agreements, with a yellow memo form attached just saying: 'Learn, guys.' Quote Right
Quote Left Money can't buy you happiness but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery. Quote Right
Quote Left A thousand years may scare form a state. An hour may lay it in ruins. Quote Right
Quote Left Whenever, therefore, people are deceived and form opinions wide of the truth, it is clear that the error has slid into their minds through the medium of certain resemblances to that truth. Quote Right
Quote Left It is the duty of those serving the people in public place closely to limit public expenditures to the actual needs of the government economically administered, because this bounds the right of the government to extract tribute from the earnings of labor or the property of the citizen, and because public extravagance begets extravagance among the people. We should never be ashamed of the simplicity and prudential economies which are best suited to the operation of a republican form of government and most compatible with the mission of the American people. Those who are selected for a limited time to manage public affairs are still of the people, and may do much by their example to encourage, consistently with the dignity of their official functions, that plain way of life which among their fellow-citizens aids integrity and promotes thrift and prosperity. Quote Right
Quote Left Treading the soil of the moon, palpating its pebbles, tasting the panic and splendor of the event, feeling in the pit of one's stomach the separation from terra... these form the most romantic sensation an explorer has ever known... this is the only thing I can say about the matter. The utilitarian results do not interest me. Quote Right
Quote Left A moment's thought shows that man's feeling of isolation has no foundation, biologically or sociologically. We grow out of the Universe, we are an expression of it. The iron in our blood comes from the high temperature fusion of stars. We constantly interact with our environment. The force of gravity keeps our feet upon the earth and has a vital effect upon our metabolism. The air we breathe comes form the seas and the leaves, and the sun allows the process to take place. Society gives us all that makes us human our culture, our symbols, our concepts and our values. Without society, the notion of the individual would have no meaning. Quote Right
Quote Left We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilisation surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees there by a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate for having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein do we err. The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth. Quote Right
Quote Left I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. Quote Right
Quote Left In our own beginnings, we are formed out of the body's interior landscape. For a short while, our mothers' bodies are the boundaries and personal geography which are all that we know of the world. ... Once we no longer live beneath our mother's heart, it is the earth with which we form the same dependent relationship, relying ... on its cycles and elements, helpless without its protective embrace. Quote Right
Quote Left I had never expected that the China initiative would come to fruition in the form of a Ping-Pong team. Quote Right
Quote Left I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. Quote Right
Quote Left The thought pattern characteristic of the right brain lends itself to the formation of original ideas, insights, discoveries. We might describe it as the kind of thought prevalent in early childhood, when everything is new and everything has meaning. If you have ever walked along a beach and suddenly stopped to pick up a piece of driftwood because it looked to you like a leaping impala or a troll, you know the feeling of pleasure that comes from the sudden recognition of a form. Your Design mind (right brain) has perceived connections and had made a pattern of meaning. It takes logical, rational acts and facts of the world you know, the snippets of your experience, the bits and pieces of your language capabilities, and perceives connections, patterns, and relationships in them. Quote Right
Quote Left Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. Expelled from individual consciousness by the rush of change, history finds its revenge by stamping the collective unconsciousness with habits, values, expectations, dreams. The dialectic between past and future will continue to form our lives. Quote Right
Quote Left A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy. Quote Right
Quote Left The feat of superbly imitating a muscle, as Michelangelo did, or a face, as Raphael did, created neither progress nor a hierarchy in art. Because these artists of the sixteenth century imitated human forms, they were not superior to the artists of the high periods of Egyptian, Chaldean, Indochinese, Roman, and Gothic art who interpreted and stylized form but did not imitate it. Quote Right
Quote Left The old Paris is no more (the form of a city changes faster, alas! than a mortal's heart). Quote Right
Quote Left The argument of this book is that we, and all other animals, are machines created by our genes. Like successful Chicago gangsters, our genes have survived, in some cases for millions of years, in a highly competitive world. This entitles us to expect certain qualities in our genes. I shall argue that a predominant quality to be expected in a successful gene is ruthless selfishness. This gene selfishness will usually give rise to selfishness in individual behavior. However, as we shall see, there are special circumstances in which a gene can achieve its own selfish goals best by fostering a limited form of altruism at the level of individual animals. 'Special' and 'limited' are important words in the last sentence. Much as we might wish to believe otherwise, universal love and the welfare of the species as a whole are concepts that simply do not make evolutionary sense. Quote Right
Quote Left [Although Ball is considered a pop singer, he's not a total stranger to Gilbert and Sullivan, having played Frederick in the West End mounting of Joe Papp's memorable production of The Pirates of Penzance . But Patience is a different kind of work--much of its humor is highly topical, poking fun at the short-lived Aesthetic movement that flourished among British dilettantes 125 years ago. Will that humor translate to a New York audience in the year 2005?] I think there's absolutely no difference to how we regarded things then and how we regard things now, ... There are still those performers and artists who strike on a new art form or mode that attracts their fans, while the majority of us may be saying, 'I'm sorry, but isn't that The Emperor's New Clothes?' There will always be charlatans who do things just to get acclaim and adulation. So I think it'll speak to an audience as clearly today as it did then. Quote Right

Quote Left Permit yourself to feel your feelings. Instead of trying to avoid difficult emotions, permit yourself to handle them. These feelings are accurate, valid, and meaningful. They can provide information and help you see things about a situation you need to change. Quote Right
Quote Left Spoken Word: Putting power to a piece through performance! ~FJ Thomas Quote Right
Quote Left Idéias sobre vida e negócios que transforma o mundo para melhor sempre surgem da possibilidade de expressar mais do que ideias corretas, mas também ideias duvidosas. Se eu fosse chamada a identificar brevemente o traço principal de todo o período de duração da Pandemia eu nunca encontraria encontrar nada mais preciso e conciso do que repetir mais uma vez: as pessoas esqueceram de que a beleza é feita da dualidade entre o branco e o escuro a idéia correta e aquela duvidosa. Quote Right
Quote Left There is only one success for all humanity: to have a positive impact on the preservation and prosperity of life. Any achievement other than this is at best merely a platform to pursue real success. Quote Right
Quote Left De agora em diante adote o seguinte pensar: continuo a caminha pela estrada em frente. Algum dia, de alguma forma, tudo se abrirá, como o desabrochar natural de um botão de rosa. O estudo diário, a reflexão de sempre faz a pessoa progredir sempre esteja ou não ciente disso. Quote Right
Quote Left Sempre é a mais importante do que as palavras, e o falante do que o que é falado. Quando a pessoa ama o trabalho de seu ofício, nunca considera qualquer questão de sucesso ou fama e assim a palavra é forte e a linguagem comovente. A pessoa que fala se transforme em palavras. Quote Right
Quote Left Desde sempre tudo é possível de permanecer vivo eternamente. Cada momento da vida ou a vida em um trabalho deve tornar a emoção da sua execução junto com seus elementos. A aparência do trabalho deve se tornar a própria mudança transformativa em cada momento. Deve entregar àquela pessoa que pensa assim sobre o trabalho e a vida um gostinho de sua Eternidade. Quote Right
Quote Left Neste momento, um momento de tempo está passando! Capture sua realidade no seu trabalho e na vida! Tire tudo o mais do pensamento. Torne-se o próprio momento. Transforme-se numa placa de registro sensível e dê uma imagem ao momento. É assim que fica pronta para fazer de tudo mais e mais Quote Right
Quote Left Masculine men are scarce in this age of confusion and perversion. Both women and men can change their sex and be what they think they should be. A male is distinguished from a female and when transformation occurs it's is only external, but internally the gender remains unchanged. Quote Right
Quote Left Nudity is not the term of shame; nudity is the real form of the birth source, but the dress code is the source of discrimination and the chance of fraudulence. Quote Right
Quote Left Precisa existir uma sábia mentoria sempre. A sábia mentoria deve indicar onde a pessoa está errada naquilo que ela pensa que está certa. Entretanto, da mesma forma que a mentoria nunca deve impor nenhuma filosofia, assim como o telefone nunca deve nos dizer o que dizer. É importante sempre recordar que para enxergar grandes monumentos se deve estar em uma vale. Dos altos somente se enxergam pequenas coisas. Quote Right
Quote Left Desde sempre se deve conhecer que as palavras são fortes ou fracas pela maneira daquela pessoa que escuta. Também todo o resto fica ligado à forma como é isso ou aquilo usado Quote Right
Quote Left Todas as pessoas – da recém-nascida àquela mais idosa tem duas lindas filhas; seus nomes são Raiva e Coragem. Na vida humana sempre deve deixe a filha Raiva se indignar com a forma como as coisas são. Deixe a filha Coragem determinar que nunca “as coisas” fiquem como estão. A cada dia dê liberdade para as filhas raiva e Coragem. Assim o mundo se transforma para melhor mais e mais. Quote Right
Quote Left Faz tempo que empreender deixou de ser uma competição adversária entre vendedores e compradores em apuros. Vivemos na época na qual a colaboração supera a concorrência, a inclusão substitui a exclusividade e a transparência e a abertura para os outros se torna essencial para a nova forma de conduzir os negócios, a sensibilidade empática tem espaço para respirar e prosperar. De agora em diante expandimos mentes e mercados e colocamos tudo no centro da vivência humana. Quote Right
Quote Left O TBT de hoje vai para a atitude poderosa e transformadora. A atitude poderosa e transformadora é perdoar o passado e quem fomos “naquela época”. Abraçar o presente e quem somos capazes de nos tornar. Entregar o futuro e ver os milagres que acontem nos dias em que se vive. Quote Right
Quote Left Autoconhecimento é menos uma questão de descobrir o que está presente em si mesmo, e mais a contínua criação de quem se quer ser. Conhecer a si mesmo é o primeiro passo para fazer com que o fluxo de prosperidade e felicidade viaje com a pessoa e faça parte de toda a nossa vida. Entretanto, da mesma forma que nunca existe “almoço” grátis na economia material, nada vem de graça na economia psíquica. Quote Right
Quote Left Life can be mean but also meaningful, at the end of a severe horrendous storm a rainbow of hope to the world is formed. Quote Right
Quote Left Desde sempre se pode afirmar: a sabedoria é como o dinheiro: para ter valor, ele deve circular e, ao circular, pode aumentar em quantidade e, com sorte, em valor. Pense comigo e creia que a maior sabedoria sempre está contida em poucas palavras e muitas formas de fazer o mesmo. A pessoa de grande sabedoria nunca pensa em agir. A pessoa de sabedoria age sempre e faz mais e mais. Quote Right
Quote Left Quando uma discussão começa, a persuasão sensibilizadora para. Portanto, se você está tentando conquistar alguém cujas lealdades naturais não são com você, entrar em uma discussão é uma maneira certa de falhar. A persuasão sensibilizadora é a forma para cada pessoa a compreender e para que a verdade flua dos corações e das línguas. É para que, se a verdade útil ao progresso estiver de um lado, a outra pessoa a siga Quote Right
Quote Left Um argumento, nunca deve ofender o ouvido, ou ser construído para vencer, sempre deve ser uma fonte de prazer. O prazer do diálogo. Ninguém é vitorioso ou vitoriosa ao ganhar uma discussão, debate ou mesmo superar obstáculos colocados por outras pessoas interlocutores. Aquela pessoa que ganha, perde, pois ainda vai nascer no mundo algo tão assustador quanto uma pessoa que perde uma discussão. Visto de outra forma, se a pessoa que argumenta, se perder, já perdeu de partida. Quote Right
Quote Left O fracasso na vida ou nos negócios, mais cedo ou mais tarde mostrará a incompetência comportamental da pessoa. A negação dessa incompetência mata milhares de modelos de vida e negócios que poderia ser agarrados pelo povo e sepulta a esperança da inovação e do progresso. Já a aceitação desbloqueia a plenitude da vida. Transforma o que temos em o suficiente, assevera que cada pessoa faz sempre o seu melhor e muito mais. Quote Right
Quote Left A poesia escrita para levar mensagens à vida pessoal ou profissional nunca é um luxo. É uma necessidade vital de nossa existência e uma terapia para superar a aflição pelo desempenho. A poesia é a maneira como ajudamos a dar nome ao anônimo para que ele possa ser pensado. A poesia liga às esperanças e sonhos em direção ao crescimento. Na poesia primeiro transformamos esperança e sonhos em linguagem, depois em ideia, depois em ação de fazer mais e mais. Quote Right
Quote Left Aquela pessoa que procura encontra. Tudo que deve ser feito qualquer atuação ou ação acontece quando se reconheçe que há algo a ser feito. Tudo que é uma vez reconhecido que deve ser feito aparece em mil formas de ser possível fazer e sempre fazer mais e mais. Quote Right
Quote Left A mais importante marca humana é a voz. A voz marca a passagem de uma pessoa pela terra. É a voz para falar por àquelas pessoas que deixaram de ter voz, pelas pessoas oprimidas e para mostrar caminhos que transforme o mundo num lugar em que se viva melhor. Vivamos para que quando no futuro perguntarem onde estávamos quando os sem voz e os vulneráveis em nossa era precisavam de líderes de compaixão e propósito, devemos estar prontas para dizer que aparecemos e que chegamos na hora certa.

Quote Left New Lyrics with Melody, are in a cense a style. The expressions that transform theoretical position of the human spirit, and can enhance attributes of the human experience. Quote Right
Quote Left Normalmente a ferramenta do construtor nunca desmonta a “casa velha”. Ao longo de milênios construímos dentro de todos nós, velhos esquemas de expectativa e resposta. Hoje é o momento de fazer o “desmonte” alterando as condições de vida que são o resultado dessas estruturas. Dessa maneira se poupa o mestre e se transforma o mundo. Quote Right
Quote Left De fato, ausência é a forma mais elevada de presença. As pessoas são muito parecidas às crianças, excessiva amabilidade causa mal! Na convivência com outras pessoas é aconselhável fazer sentir de tempos em tempos a homem ou mulher, que podemos passar sem ele ou ela. Quote Right
Quote Left Nem mesmo a maior corredeira, a maior enxurrada é mais rápida do que o caminho do ser humano em direção ao erro. E ainda existe uma corrida entre os seres humanos. Muitos são rápidos para raciocinar erroneamente e disputam com outros que nunca raciocinam de forma alguma: ambos correm de outros que perseguem tanto a quem raciocina quanto os outros que nunca raciocinam. Observar a corrida entre os seres humanos é contemplar a extensão da estupidez humana. Quote Right
