„There's probably 5000 times more solar energy than the humans will ever need.“

—  William McDonough American architect 1951
Context: There's probably 5000 times more solar energy than the humans will ever need. We could cover our highways with solar collectors to make ribbons of energy, and I think that it's really the largest job creation program in the history of the planet that's in front of us. It's a celebration of the abundance of human creativity combined with the abundance of the natural world. "William McDonough: Godfather of Green", WNYC Studio 360 (18 March 2008).

„One cannot live through a long stretch of years without forming some philosophy of life.“

—  Clarence Darrow American lawyer and leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union 1857 - 1938
The Story of My Life (1932), Context: One cannot live through a long stretch of years without forming some philosophy of life. As one journeys along he gains experiences and even some ideas. Accumulated opinions and philosophy may be more important to others than the bare facts about how he lived, so my ambition is not so much to relate the occurrences as to record the ideas that life has forced me to accept; and, after all, thoughts, impressions and feelings are really life itself. I should like to think that these reflections might make existence a trifle easier for some of those who may chance to read this story. Ch. 1 "Before The Beginning"

„To live in prison is to live without mirrors. To live
without mirrors is to live without the self.“

—  Margaret Atwood Canadian writer 1939
Selected Poems 1976-1986 (1987), Marrying the Hangman, Context: To live in prison is to live without mirrors. To live without mirrors is to live without the self. She is living selflessly, she finds a hole in the stone wall and on the other side of the wall, a voice. The voice comes through darkness and has no face. This voice becomes her mirror.

„It is impossible to live a pleasant life without living wisely and honorably and justly, and it is impossible to live wisely and honorably and justly without living pleasantly.“

—  Epicurus ancient Greek philosopher -342 - -270 a.C.
Sovereign Maxims, Context: It is impossible to live a pleasant life without living wisely and honorably and justly, and it is impossible to live wisely and honorably and justly without living pleasantly. Whenever any one of these is lacking, when, for instance, the man is not able to live wisely, though he lives honorably and justly, it is impossible for him to live a pleasant life. (5)
