The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were and ask 'why not'? —John F. Kennedy
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. —Roald Dahl
At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And with steam, you can power a train.  —S.L. Parker
We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light! —Hafez
