We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn
Mary Catherine Bateson
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light

My advice for aspiring writers is go to New York. And if you can’t go to New York, go to the place that represents New York to you, where the standards for writing are high, there are other people who share your dreams, and where you can talk, talk, talk about your interests. Writing books begins in talking about it, like most human projects, and in being close to those who have already done what you propose to do
Walter Kirn
I think I fell in love with her, a little bit. Isn’t that dumb? But it was like I knew her. Like she was my oldest, dearest friend. The kind of person you can tell anything to, no matter how bad, and they’ll still love you, because they know you. I wanted to go with her. I wanted her to notice me. And then she stopped walking. Under the moon, she stopped. And looked at us. She looked at me. Maybe she was trying to tell me something; I don’t know. She probably didn’t even know I was there. But I’ll always love her. All my life
Neil Gaiman
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything
George Bernard Shaw
One’s life and passion may be elsewhere, but New York is where you prove if what you think in theory makes sense in life
Miuccia Prada
Friendship… is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything
Muhammad Ali
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve
Napoleon Hill
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face
Victor Hugo
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are
