Don’t ignore your dreams; don’t work too much; say what you think; cultivate friendships; be happy.
Barnebokforfatter Maurice Sendac (best kjent for den fantastiske Where the Wild Things Are) (via Frank Chimero) (0)
Reporter: â€œWhat do you say to parents who think the Wild Things film may be too scary?â€
Sendak: â€œI would tell them to go to hell. Thatâ€™s a question I will not tolerate.â€
Reporter: â€œBecause kids can handle it?â€
Sendak: â€œIf they canâ€™t handle it, go home. Or wet your pants. Do whatever you like. But itâ€™s not a question that can be answered.â€

The next suitable person youâ€™re in light conversation with, you stop suddenly in the middle of the conversation and look at the person closely and say, â€œWhatâ€™s wrong?â€ You say it in a concerned way. Heâ€™ll say, â€œWhat do you mean?â€ You say, â€œSomethingâ€™s wrong. I can tell. What is it?â€ And heâ€™ll look stunned and say, â€œHow did you know?â€ He doesnâ€™t realize somethingâ€™s always wrong, with everybody.

Technology alone is not enough. Itâ€™s technology, married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing.

The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules, but by people following the rules.

In CASINO ROYALE, James Bond is the Bond girl. Look at the way they even show him emerging from the ocean like Ursula Andress. Sexual torture, too, if less creepy-glam than being stripped and painted gold. Vesper Lynd is Bond: never not in control, never without a plan, seducing to further her goals. She has to die so Bond can become her.

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses â€” behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights. â€¦ Itâ€™s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.

For the second year in a row, the U.S. military has lost more troops to suicide than it has to combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.

You don’t rock all the time. No one does. No one is a rock star, superstar, world-changing artist all the time. In fact, it’s a self-defeating goal. You can’t do it.
No, but you might rock five minutes a day.
Five minutes to write a blog post that changes everything, or five minutes to deliver an act of generosity that changes someone. Five minutes to invent a great new feature, or five minutes to teach a groundbreaking skill in a way that no one ever thought of before. Five minutes to tell the truth (or hear the truth).

Subject: RE: Fornorske ordet Â«psykiskÂ»
Cc: Marit Hovdenak
Ã…rsaken til at p er med, finner vi i det greske utgangspunktet ÏˆÏ…Ï‡Î®, der den fÃ¸rste bokstaven representerer ps-uttale. Denne uttalen er umulig pÃ¥ norsk (og mange andre sprÃ¥k), og derfor fÃ¥r vi nÃ¸dvendigvis s-uttale. Vi har ogsÃ¥ noen andre lÃ¥nord fra gresk der vi skriver ps-, som i Â«pseudonymÂ» og Â«psoriasisÂ». Derimot er p-en borte i det gamle lÃ¥nordet Â«salmeÂ».
Det vil neppe bli gjort noe enkeltvedtak for ordet Â«psykiskÂ»; ei endring vil eventuelt mÃ¥tte komme sammen med endringer i andre Â«ps-ordÂ». Vi merker oss likevel Ã¸nsket ditt.

You came here because we do this better than you, and part of that is letting our creatives be unproductive until they are.

There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.
