"Men must be taught as if you taught them not
And things new proposed as things forgot." - Alexander Pope (Essay on Criticism)
"Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed." - Benjamin Franklin
"And when he is out of sight, quickly also is he out of mind." - Thomas a Kempis
"The bravest battle that ever was fought; Shall I tell you where and when? On the maps of the world you will find it not; It was fought by the mothers of men." - Joaquin Miller (pseudonym of Cincinnatus Hiner Miller)

"Turn away from the predictable, clich├ęd, and reliable. Brave the void where the darkness is greatest. Trust the quiet, find the stillness, feel the calm. Then, steadily, think, speak and move as if you were led. Behave as if your vision were clear. Anticipate the emotional rush that will come with your triumph. And as if by magic, as you raise your pen to write, you'll find the words have already been summoned, flooded in light that was there all along, in a world that had just as anxiously anticipated your arrival. " - The Universe
