    Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.

    There are seasons in every country when noise and impudence pass current for worth; and in popular commotions especially, the clamors of interested and factious men are often mistaken for patriotism.

    Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.

    Yes. I PMed this awesome member as the exodus occurred.

    A unique and thought provoking thread, where as mine is a bunch of puns and dirty gear.

    Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

    The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.

    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

    You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war.

    We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    Once you hear the details of victory, it is hard to distinguish it from a defeat.

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

    There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
