Quotable Notables
"There is a coherent plan in the universe, though I don't know what it's a plan for." - FRED HOYLE

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." MARK TWAIN

"I don't pretend to know what you want, but I offer love" CROWDED HOUSE

"We are here on Earth to fart around, and don’t let anyone tell you any different." KURT VONNEGUT JR

"Laughter is the language of the soul." PABLO NERUDA

"I speak the truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more as I grow older." MONTAIGNE

"Cats can work out mathematically the exact place to sit that will cause most inconvenience." PAM BROWN

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has." MARGARET MEAD

"Those are a success who have lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who have gained the respect of intelligent people and the love of children, who have filled their niche and accomplished their task, who leave the world better than they found it, whether by a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of the earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best they had." RALPH WALDO EMERSON

"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." VOLTAIRE

"It is a delicious thing to write, whether well or badly...to be no longer yourself but to move in an entire universe of your own creating." GUSTAVE FLAUBERT

“Who travels for love finds a thousand miles not longer than one.” JAPANESE PROVERB

"It's acceptable for men to act the fool. When women try, they're considered aggressive and opinionated." MADELINE KAHN

"The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity. But not in that order." - BRIAN PICKRELL (although Einstein and Harlan Ellison both seem to have said something similar)

"Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards." - FRED HOYLE

"I don't remember deciding to become a writer. You decide to become a dentist or a postman. For me, writing is like being gay. You finally admit that this is who you are, you come out and hope that no one runs away." MARK HADDON
