Unbroken’s story

I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.
Harper Lee

Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the Company.
Mark Twain

We approach people the same way we approach our cars. We take the poor kid to a doctor and ask: What’s wrong with him, how much will it cost and when can I pick him up.
James Hillman

A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
Steve Martin

Fiction’s about what it is to be a human being. The reader becomes God, for all textual purposes, I see your eyes glazing over so I’ll hush.
David Foster Wallace

Between two evils, I always pick the one I haven’t tried before.
Mae West

I always wanted to be someone, now I realize I should have been more specific.
Lily Tomlin

We can’t change anything until we get some fresh ideas, until we begin to see things differently.
James Hillman

Since Alice had never received any religious instruction and since she had led a blameless life though she had awful luck she never thought of it as being anything but accidents in a very busy place. Good for her.
Karl Vonnegut

I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.
Woody Allen

A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I’m afraid of widths.
Steven Wright

The problem is once the rules of art are debunked and once the unpleasant realities, the irony, the diagnoses are revealed and diagnosed, then what do we do?
David Foster Wallace

I have heard there are troubles of more then one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve brought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me.
Dr. Seuss

There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
Leonard Cohen

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.
Elbert Hubbard

I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think a pessimist is someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.
Leonard Cohen

There is only one rule that I know of, babies: God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.
Karl Vonnegut

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
Douglas Adams

Tears are a river that takes you somewhere. Tears lift your boat off the rocks, off dry ground, carrying it down river to some place better.
Clarissa Estes

A pessimist is a person who had to listen to too many optimists.
Don Marquis

In dreams truth is learned that all good works are done in the absence of a caress.
Leonard Cohen

Anyone who say he can see through a women is missing a lot.
Groucho Marx

I am an idealist. I don’t know where I am going but I am on my way.
Carl Sandberg

I used to be Snow White but I drifted.
Mae West

This kind of forgetting doesn’t erase memory, it lays the emotion surrounding the memory to rest.
Clarissa Estes

If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.
Albert Einstein

Let judges secretly despair of justice; their verdicts will be more acute. Let generals secretly despair of triumph; killing will be defamed. Let priests secretly despair of faith; their compassion will be true.
Leonard Cohen

Refuse to fall down. If you cannot refuse to fall down, refuse to stay down, lift your heart toward heaven like a hungry beggar, ask that is be filled and it will be filled. You may be pushed down. You may be kept from rising. But no one can keep you from lifting your heart toward heaven-only you. It is in the middle of misery that so much becomes clear. The one who says nothing good can come of this is not yet listening.
Clarissa Estes

In me I have found only one reality; that I breathe in and I breathe out. And so anything that breathes in and out is reality. When I found this as a reality in everybody, I found myself in everybody and everybody in myself.
Yogi Bhajan
