I leave in a week

Losing mind. Need to meme.

Go to the Random Quotations Page and look through the random quotations until you find five that you think reflect who you are or what you believe. Repost them in your journal (with this information) and, if you so wish, tag five friends to complete this meme. (Screw tagging. If you want to do it, feel free. If not, don't.)

I needed more than five, so I picked ten.

Realism...has no more to do with reality than anything else. Hob Broun

Ours is the age that is proud of machines that think and suspicious of men who try to. H. Mumford Jones (1892 - 1980) US critic & educator

There's a dark side to each and every human soul. We wish we were Obi-Wan Kenobi, and for the most part we are, but there's a little Darth Vadar in all of us. Thing is, this ain't no either or proposition. We're talking about dialectics, the good and the bad merging into us. You can run but you can't hide. My experience? Face the darkness, stare it down. Own it. As brother Nietzsche said, being human is a complicated gig. Give that old dark night of the soul a hug! Howl the eternal yes! Stuart Stevens, Northern Exposure, Jules et Joel, 1991

There are two kinds of people in the world, those who believe there are two kinds of people in the world and those who don't. Robert Benchley (1889 - 1945), Benchley's Law of Distinction

I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart. Alice Walker

The faith that stand on authority is not faith. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not wrong or hate your neighbor, for it is not he that you wrong: You wrong yourself. Shawnee Indian Chant

I never vote for anyone; I always vote against. W.C. Fields

"Only a novel"... in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour are conveyed to the world in the best chosen language. Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Steve Jobs US computer engineer & industrialist
