    In order to be forgiven, you must firsr forgive yourself.

    In order for anyone to truly grow is to make their own choices.

    In order to truly know a person is not by what they say or do, it is by what they do not say.

    Kurt Vonnegut may very well be my favourite person to quote from:

    ~"Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; Man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?' Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; Man got to tell himself he understand."
    ~"So it goes."
    ~"Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter could be said to remedy anything."
    ~"What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured."
    ~"Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia."
    ~"The feeling about a soldier is, when all is said and done, he wasn't really going to do very much with his life anyway. The example usually is: he wasn't going to compose Beethoven's Fifth."

    "The practical value, which a merely speculative science may have, lies without the bounds of this science, and can therefore be considered a scholium merely, and like all scholia does not form part of the science itself. This application, however, surely lies within the bounds of philosophy, especially of philosophy drawn from the pure sources of reason, where its speculative use in metaphysics must necessarily be at one with its practical use in morals."

    Kant, Prolegomena, 364.
