„I'd hate to be a teetotaller. Imagine getting up in the morning and knowing that's as good as you're going to feel all day.“
„The most dangerous way to lose time is not to spend it having fun, but to spend it doing fake work. When you spend time having fun, you know you're being self-indulgent. Alarms start to go off fairly quickly. If I woke up one morning and sat down on the sofa and watched TV all day, I'd feel like something was terribly wrong. … But the same alarms don't go off on the days when I get nothing done, because I'm doing stuff that seems, superficially, like real work.“
— Paul Graham English programmer, venture capitalist, and essayist 1964
„You know that feeling you get / You feel you're older than time?
Do you keep the receipts for the friends that you buy?
And I hope you know / That it won't let go / It sticks around with you until the day you die.
I hope the tears don't stain the world that waits outside.“
— Noel Gallagher British musician 1967

„All the people who are hating me right now and are here waiting to see me die, when you wake up in the morning you aren't going to feel any different. You are going to hate me as much tomorrow as you do tonight.

And if by chance i cannot have it I can't say
But with it I know heaven's just a kiss away.“

„I will not sign a 30-day or a 60-day or a 90-day extension. That is just not an acceptable approach. And if we think it’s going to be hard -- if we think it’s hard now, imagine how these guys are going to be thinking six months from now in the middle of election season where they’re all up. It’s not going to get easier. It’s going to get harder. So we might as well do it now -- pull off the Band-Aid; eat our peas. Now is the time to do it. If not now, when?“
