Quotations and other bits and pieces

“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, Concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed” Paulo Coelho

"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people are so full of doubt." Bertrand Russell 

"It is the truth we ourselves speak rather than the treatment we receive that heals us." O. Hobart Mowrer

"Once you have flown, you will walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you have been, there you long to return." Leonardo De Vinci
I found this on page 1 of the book "A General Theory of Love" by Thomas Lewis. MD., Fari Amini, MD., Richard Lannon, MD.  Wont take too much thought as to what the authors of the book were referring to :)

A couple of interesting quotes I found: all anonymous,
unfortunately, means I can't give them due credit. 

"Time decides who you meet in your life.
Your heart decides who you want in your life
And your behavior decides who stays in your life."

"Don't  beg anyone to stay in your life.
If they want to be in your life, they will stay."

"If I cut you off, the chances are you handed me the scissors."

"First they censored the porn sites, and I
did not speak out as I did not watch porn.
They they censored the dissident sites, and I
did not speak out as I was not a dissident.
They they censored the alternative media sites, and I
did not speak out as I got my news from the main stream media.
They they took control of the main internet, and I
could not speak out as freedom of speech was made illegal.
It is never about protection, its always about control."
