be wary of...

'People who claim they are evil are usually no worse than the rest of us.' He sighed. 'It's people who claim that they're good, or anyway better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of.

-from Gregory McGuire's 'Wicked'

the function of man is to live

"I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it be stifled by dry rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time."

-Jack London

this little space inbetween

"I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me, but just this little space inbetween. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed, but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt."
