quotes with insight (into my life)...

"The consultant I met with last night was fascinating, and independent, and wonderful. She was positive, thoughtful, insightful, and a pleasure to work with because her perspective was removed, but engaged at the same time, and she was funny and a little bit dry, but very hopeful, without being overly sugary. She was just the right mix of positivity, realism, and wit to be the shoe that fit."
Meredith Lom

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it solely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
Mark Twain

"Imagine we are all the same. Imagine we agree about politics, religion and morality. Imagine we like the same types of music, art, food and coffee. Imagine we all look alike. Sound boring? Differences need not divide us. Embrace diversity. Dignity is everone's human right."
Bill Burmmel, Documentary filmmaker.

"The good life is the middle way
Between ambition and compassion
Between action and reflection
Between company and solitude
Between hedonism and abstinence
Between passion and judgment
Between the cup of coffeeand the glass of wine."
Jay McInerney, Author of Bright Lights,
Big Cityand The Good Life.

"What you do to others you really do to yourself. So when you do good to others, you're doing good to yourself. Alternatively, when you do bad to others, you're doing bad to yourself. So in thinking of others, think of yourself, for to love and do right by others is to love and do right to your own self."
Leela James, Musician

"The human brain is the only object in the known universe that can predict its own future and tell its own fortune. The fact that we can make disastrous decisions even as we foresee their consequences is the great, unsolved mystery of human behavior. When you hold your fate in your hands, why would you ever make a fist?"
Daniel Gilbert, Harvard professor of psychology
and author of Stumbling on Happiness
