I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. 

The Possible's slow fuse is lit
By the Imagination.
~Emily Dickinson

You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus. 
~Mark Twain

Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence. 
~Norman Podhoretz

I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day. 
~Abraham Lincoln

Transcend political correctness and strive for human righteousness. 
~Anthony J. D'Angelo, The College Blue Book

Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught. 
~J.C. Watts

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~Buddha

Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out. ~Michael Burke

Instinct is intelligence incapable of self-consciousness. 
~John Sterling
Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way. 
~Florence Scovel Shinn

I would rather trust a woman's instinct than a man's reason. 
~Stanley Baldwin

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life. 
~Andrew Brown
