Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world’s estimation.
Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)

The highest result of education is tolerance.
Helen Keller (1880-1968)

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity. –Gilda Radner (1946-1989)

Someone who thinks death is the scariest thing doesn’t know a thing about life.
Sue Monk Kidd (1948- )

After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.
Ann Richards (1933-2006)
