What is your favorite quote, and why?

A quote can say a lot about a person. I love to read quotes and try to decipher what I believe the meaning is.

My favorite quote is from the movie "The Fountain" -

"Our bodies are prisons for our souls. Our skin and blood the iron bars of confinement. But fear not. All flesh decays. Death turns all to ash. And thus, death frees every soul."

It's comforting to think this way.

    Because I like to be creative and Ideas makes money not the other way around...and also because is very important to understand ONE thing: Making "mistake" is not bad is just finding how not to do something or just checking off a step towards the real solution...applicable in any domain of life from Dating to Business to Life!

    There's nothing wrong with following others but to do so without thinking about why, about making a conscious choice to do so, this is the worst thing you can do in life.

    One of my father's favorite sayings (paraphrased from "The Tempest"). It reminds me to walk through my irrational fears.
  • Jan 11 2013: Life is like the last three letters of the word life.
    It's "iffy".
    Thus, the mind creates the abyss
    and the heart must cross this.
    When you don't know the outcome,trust what you know
    and you will come out the other side.
    You won't have a nervous breakdown but you will have a nervous breakthrough.

    All the way to heaven, is heaven.

    Life is filled with adversity. It is not the obstacle that defeats us but how we approach obstacles that make us grow.

    Jan 11 2013: "If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light in you is not darkness." - Jesus Christ (Luke 11:34&35)

    I love this because it tells of the importance of good eyesight and vision and light; and the importance of being sure that what one calls 'light' is not actually darkness.
