…And since it’s such a nice Friday, with the weekend upon us, I’ll leave you with these little gems:

“Don’t confuse progress with winning.  If the world is improving at ten percent and you’re improving at two percent, you might be improving but you’re losing.”

“My mom grew up on a farm during the Great Depression.  My dad grew up in an iron-mining area of upper Minnesota.  They taught my brother and me two lessons: There is no substitute for hard work.  And work before you play.”

“Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction by merely flipping his hand.  Under water man becomes an archangel.” Jacques-Yves Cousteau

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Picasso

“And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.” John Steinbeck

 “My belief is that art should not be comforting; for comfort, we have mass entertainment and one another. Art should provoke, disturb, arouse our emotions, expand our sympathies in directions we may not anticipate and may not even wish.”
― Joyce Carol Oates

“It I only had a brain.” The Tin Man

“I’m never as lonely as when I’m inside a crowded room.” Michele Filgate

“Every life from the inside seems like a record of failure.” George Elliot

“We all move uneasily within our restraints.” Kay Jamison

“The world will not be destroyed by those who do wrong, but by those who sit by and do nothing.” Einstein
