Kurt Vonnegut

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

The man in the shack who rules the universe.

I say what it occurs to me to say when I think I hear people say things. More, I cannot say.

Calvin Coolidge

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
