"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much."—Mother Teresa
"When one burns one's bridges, what a very nice fire it makes."—Dylan Thomas
"If you think you have it tough, read history books."—Bill Maher
And Voltaire: "Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats."
