    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover" -- Mark Twain

    "It is not the brains that matter most, but that which guides them -- the character, the heart, the generous qualities, progressive ideas" -- Dostoyevsky

    "My opinion is that there's no such thing as the so-called "world". People can only see their own lives, and they can only observe life from the standpoint of their own life experiences, so that our impressions of life are really only our impressions of our own life, and our impressions of the world are just our impressions of the environment we live in. At some point I wrote that this thing we call the world is really just a corner of the world; every corner of the world that people live in, like this office we're in right now, might be the whole world." --Jia Zhangke, talking about his film THE WORLD.
