    "...contrary to the naïve dogmatists’ view, that which science captures are not the things themselves, but simply relationships between them. Beyond these relations, there is no knowable reality..." -- Henri Poincare, "Science and Hypothesis"

    “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
    ― Rob Siltanen

    “It is exactly when others insist that it’s a sign of being free, fresh, and radical to do what everybody’s doing that you might want to take notice and think for yourself. Don’t be surprised if this is really hard to do.”

    “Be brave. Be free from philosophies, prophets and holy lies. Go deep into your feelings and explore the mystery of your body, mind and soul. You will find the truth.”

    "And the people stayed home.
    And read books and listened, and rested and exercised,
    and made art and played games,
    and learned new ways of being and were still.
    And listened more deeply.
    Some meditated, some prayed, some danced.
    Some met their shadows.
    And the people began to think differently.

    And the people healed.
    And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless and heartless ways the earth began to heal.

    And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again,
    they grieved their losses, and made new choices,
    and dreamed new images,
    and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully,
    as they had been healed."

    – Written by Kitty O’Meara

    “As time goes on, you'll understand. What lasts, lasts; what doesn't, doesn't. Time solves most things. And what time can't solve, you have to solve yourself.”

    “If I could only teach you one thing about the world, it would be to appreciate and be as present as possible in every moment. Take everything in and try and learn from it. No matter how tangled things get, there is always a lesson to be learned in the untangling of those things.”
    ― Bethany Brookbank, Write like no one is reading

    “But the most important thing to know about being an introvert is that there’s nothing wrong with you. You’re not broken because you’re quiet. It’s okay to stay home on a Friday night instead of going to a party. Being an introvert is a perfectly normal 'thing' to be.”

    “The attempt to develop a sense of humor and to see things in a humorous light is some kind of a trick learned while mastering the art of living.”

    One of my friends from high school recently posted on his Facebook page, "I just realized that I don't have a lifestyle".

    Ok, that's funny but his response when his friend posted "how do you define lifestyle?" was even funnier. He said "Anything with style".

    “And I, infinitesimal being,
    drunk with the great starry
    void,
    likeness, image of
    mystery,
    I felt myself a pure part
    of the abyss,
    I wheeled with the stars,
    my heart broke loose on the wind.”
    ― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
