«A restless soul burns through the coldest nights.»


«Meine Sinne sind hier
Meine Füsse stehen fest
Die Seele ist frei
Die Flügel tragen mich weit»


«Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.»

Robin Williams

«Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.»

Hunter S.Thompson

«The best proof of love is trust.»

Joyce Brothers

«Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.»

Janis Joplin

«Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.»

Karl Popper

«An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.»

Benjamin Franklin

«I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.»

Albert Einstein

«Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.»

Winston Churchill

«It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.»

Upton Sinclair

«I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.»

Stephen Jay Gould

«It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.»

Carl Sagan

«It is right that we ask people to accept each of the things which are said in the same way: for it is the mark of an educated person to search for the same kind of clarity in each topic to the extent that the nature of the matter accepts it.»


«Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.»

Thomas à Kempis

«It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.»

Agnes Repplier

«He that respects himself is safe from others; he wears a coat of mail that none can pierce.»

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

«When in doubt, do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.»

Mark Twain

«Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.»

Soren Kierkegaard

«The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.»

Hubert Humphrey

«You have to begin to lose your memory, if only in bits and pieces, to realise that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it, we are nothing.»

Luis Buñuel

«The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: It is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.»

Salvador Dali

«We can be afraid, e.g., or be confident, or have appetites, or get angry, or feel pity, in general have pleasure or pain, both too much and too little, and in both ways not well; but having these feelings at the right times, about the right things, towards the right people, for the right end, and in the right way, is the intermediate and best condition, and this is proper to virtue.»


«Far from feeling lonely or abandoned, I feel very much a part of what is taking place on the lunar surface. I know that I would be a liar or a fool if I said that I have the best of the three Apollo 11 seats, but I can say with truth and equanimity that I am perfectly satisfied with the one I have. This venture has been structured for three men, and I consider my third to be as necessary as either of the other two. I don't mean to deny a feeling of solitude. It is there, reinforced by the fact that radio contact with the Earth abruptly cuts off at the instant I disappear behind the moon, I am alone now, truly alone, and absolutely isolated from any known life. I am it. If a count were taken, the score would be three billion plus two over on the other side of the moon, and one plus God knows what on this side.»

Michael Collins
