saw so many (Sandi, Kabat, Nicole) post quotes on FB. thought we could collect them ?
"But if there is a sense of reality, and no one will doubt that it has its justification for existing, then there must also be something we can call a sense of possibility."
"I've learned to let go of attachment to things I can't control.Just park them to the side and focus on what's in front of me. The concept of that is very freeing."
"My conception of the audience is of a public each member of which is carrying about with him what he thinks is an anxiety, or a hope, or a preoccupation which is his alone and isolates him from mankind;
and in this respect at least the function of a play is to reveal him to himself so that he may touch others by virtue of the revelation of his mutuality with them.
If only for this reason I regard the theater as a serious business, one that makes or should make man more human, which is to say, less alone."
"It is not enough to demand insight and informative images of reality from the theater. Our theater must stimulate a desire for understanding, a delight in changing reality.
Our audience must experience not only the ways to free Prometheus, but be schooled in the very desire to free him. Theater must teach all the pleasures and joys of discovery, all the feelings of triumph associated with liberation."
“Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.” - Gillian Anderson
“Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.” - Gillian Anderson
“So much of this world is based on illusion, temporariness, and disposability that I think it's essential that our closest relationships reflect what is real.” - Gillian Anderson
"Every time I decide to share about anything in my life it seems too vague that there's no point really or if I get specific then I feel like a twat because I feel like I have so much and how dare I share about my fortunate existence and then I think, well then share something profound but I don’t have anything profound to say or any words of wisdom or any recipes or hints on how to set a table." - Gillian Anderson
"I hope you are all, every one of you, happy and doing what you want to be doing in your life. Really." - Gillian Anderson
"When I think of normal, I think of mediocrity… and mediocrity scares the fuck out of me." - Gillian Anderson
At "The Monsters Ball" in Brisbane on March 27th 2010 - The fabulous Lady GaGa said she wasn't the popular girl at school... "Be whoever you want to be, not who someone else wants you to be." <3
"A friend is one before whom I may think aloud." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"You must be the change you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi
"Whatever your mind can conceive and can believe, it can achieve." - Napoleon Hill
Wow! Thanks for the bunch of them Sandi! :D
my fav Gandhi quote (up to now): "No culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive"
I always liked the one that Patricia has on her profile here on Biglight:
"To me that feels right, that feels like life to me. Because we all think we're in a drama,
but actually we're in a comedy."

It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.
~Henry Louis Mencken
"No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar. "
"Truth would quickly cease to become stranger than fiction, once we got as used to it."
"Nothing is more seductive for man than his freedom of conscience, but nothing is a greater cause of suffering."
