A love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life.  But there was always some obstacle in the way.  Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid.  Then life would begin.  At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
―Fr. Alfred D’Souza

“Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
―Oscar Wilde

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
―Theodore Roosevelt

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
―Michael Pollan

“I gotta feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night.”
―The Black Eyed Peas

“Suppose you are impressed with a particular cloud in the sky. When it is time for that cloud to become the rain you won’t see that cloud anymore and you will cry. But if you know that the cloud has been transformed into the rain and the rain is calling you, ‘Darling, I am here, I’m here,’ if you have that kind of capacity of recognizing the continuation of that manifestation, you don’t have to live in despair and grief. That is why for those who have lost someone who is close to him or to her I advise that they look deeply within and see that the one who was close is still there, somehow, and with the practice of deep looking they can recognize his or her presence very close to him or to her.”
―Thich Nhat Hanh

“D’oh!”
―Homer Simpson

“All you need is Love.”
