After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes,
it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."

that must be explained to be understood.
If it does need additional interpretation
by someone other than the creator,
then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose."
—Charles Chaplin

"Oh, what would a girl like Sarah want with a simple
Nebraska boy like me? I don't know nothin' about fancy cars
and fancy restaurants. Still, I would love to show her
a moonlit night out by the hay stacks."
—Joe

LOOK WITHIN

tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

The brain has corridors surpassing material place."
—Emily Dickenson

and that is where all our battles should be fought."
—Mahatma Gandhi

YOU DIG

is a fully-loaded phaser bank."
—Montgomery Scott

"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match
for a good blaster at your side, kid."
—Han Solo

"You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend:
those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig."

FATHER'S DAY 



"A father has to be a provider, a teacher, a role model,
but most importantly, a distant authority figure
who can never be pleased."

and often I found in the son the unveiled secret of the father."
—Friedrich Nietzsche

it matters who I remember he was."
