“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”—Robert Fulghum (All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)
“Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores are never settled; old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for, is that one day we’ll be lucky enough to forget.”—Meredith Grey (Greys Anatomy)
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”—Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)
“There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things left undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless.”—Looking For Alaska (via illuminatedchaos)
“Nous n’héritons pas de la Terre de nos ancêtres. Nous l’empruntons à nos enfants.”—
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Et quand les gens comprend cela, la qualité de vie sur notre Terre améliorera. Peut-être le gouvernement des E.U. devrait aussi le comprendre. Je sais que mes cotisations de sécurité sociale n’y sera pas quand je prendrai ma retraite. Les chefs d’état contracte les dettes avec l’argent des jeunes, et personne ne les arrête ! Et pourquoi ? Pour les votes des vieux ! Pfft ! Et quelqu’un m’a demandé pourquoi je n’aime pas les politiques !
