You know, hate crimes toward LGTB people—extremely anti-gay, anti-bi, anti-trans rhetoric is constantly creating a poisonous environment, which leads towards people hating themselves, it leads to people being violent towards one another, towards bullying and abuse, and it really needs to stop. People are really, really struggling, and they deserve to live freely and love freely and not be afraid."
"Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting."
"It's like the one friend, I guess, that he has in the world. I mean, I heard a phrase once, somebody was talking about their wife. This was a person who was very inept socially, not the wife but the man. There were many things said about him that weren't kind, and he said, 'My wife, who is lovely and social and everything like that, is my human credential.'

"You know, I've been through a lot personally, and there are families who have gone through a lot more than what I've gone through with heart problems.

We've teamed up with the American Heart Association hoping we can bring awareness to you know heart problems and finding ways to prevent these things; if it's screening or if it's a defibulator, instructions, just things that we could do to help going forward. You know if we can get this going maybe we can get the whole League to jump on our backs and do this. I think that'd be great for us and the team and the American Heart Association."

"So, I don't want to hear about what we're all concerned about, terrorism now and things that are going on. This is the legacy. You guys. What message does it send to our first responders if once we're done as a nation with them helping us, that we forget about them? That's unacceptable to me."
"People ask me what I've lost, but I don't feel that I've lost anything. I have my son and daughter the way they should be."

"When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down, 'happy.' They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people's thinking.

"Don't let your limitations overshadow your talents."
"A compass, I learnt when I was surveying, it'll point you True North from where you are standing, but it's got no advice about the swamps and deserts and chasms you'll encounter along the way.

"Look again at that dot. That's here; that's home; that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

"...Man, if we could go somewhere near the equator of Mars on a summer Mars day and look at some slushy, super-salty ice and find molybdenum dioxide-enabled Martian microbes, it would change the world. And there's one way to make sure you never find them; that's to not go looking.

"Yesterday morning, I sat and read the news with a cup of coffee in hand. The headline read: 'Lance Armstrong's tarnished legacy.' Tarnished? His records may be tarnished, his racing image may be tarnished, and his trophies may now be tarnished. But his legacy? Never. His legacy lives on in the cancer survivors, and their families, whose lives were saved because of the Livestrong Foundation. And it lives on in people like me who get up and run — no matter what. We will all 'Livestrong' forever, together, bonded by a simple yellow band and a common mentality."

"All you nay-sayers are astounding me.
"What is captured on the pages can be printed again. If they burn 1,000, we can print 10,000. What's the big deal? A NATO soldier killing innocent people is far more painful than the burning of a Quran. I would rather they burn 100 Qurans than to hurt one woman or man or child."

"That's the difference between people like me and heroes who stop and say, 'Is there anybody I can help get out?' I don't know. You know, heroism is someone maybe who is so afraid, who's so frightened that gets fed up and says, 'Dammit, I'm not going to let this happen not only to me but to somebody else.'"
"It just goes to show the disconnect between those we elect to represent us and those that get out there and do the work because I am here to say that you won't find a single New York City firefighter who considers it a sign of disrespect to work in a New York City firehouse on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day."

"I also feel like when I am getting a massage that's when they're going to find 'the lump.' Like do you know how I feel like somebody will be manipulating and say, 'Hey, did you know...?' 'Nope!' Because if you don't know, you don't know. If you don't do any self-examinations or see a doctor ever, you'll live forever. That's how you do it. The diagnosis is what gets you. You just have a 'don't ask, don't tell' policy with any and all bodily functions."
"But terrorism is waged by individuals. We saw these young, peasant boys who had little education and no prospects in their country; they are the ones who enlist for the Jihad. So we have political and ideological forces on one hand and the simple despair of young men on the other. The two have combined to create a deadly mix. The only way this movie will end well is if we tackle both sides of this problem, and we need to get the military-informed policy right. But we also need to change the sense of hopelessness and the culture of hate that exists in these societies. We need to help these young men you just watched embrace life rather than death."

What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with.
