If we don’t discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us.
Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.
“If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”
All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.
“You have to really believe not only in yourself; you have to believe that the world is actually worth your sacrifices.”

The people who are trying to make the world worse are not taking the day off. Why should I?
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense . Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what it is, it wouldn’t be and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see? (from Alice in Wonderland)
Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it.
What the world needs is more love and less paperwork.
Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world was here first.
