"Money buys happiness, guaranteed. It also buys sadness and depression, lonely and supression, death and destruction, despair and never forgiveness."

-Buddha and Jesus

Both of these enlightened people have dealt with fear, especially the most common one: the fear d death. Buddha achieved Nirvana and Jesus came back from the dead, but it was before that that they told their disciples to stop their constant fear of what's to come. Nothing soothes me quite like those words.


"You will be"

-Yoda

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.

I have a book with this title (I'm not sure where it is at the moment). I don't remember who wrote it, but it's out there. Not a bad book, actually.

The circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant, it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are --Mew Two

I feel a little silly saying that, but when i was a little child, that one line had a very profound affect on me, actually, its all i remember from the first Pokemon Movie. I have lived that way my whole life ever since hearing him say that.
