Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

From Carl Sagan, the famous astronomer and teacher:

"Look again at that pale blue dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward. every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colours, but they all have to live in the same box.

People are always looking for the single magic bullet that will totally change everything. There is no single magic bullet.
