    ''Don't take unfair criticism to heart. People see your actions and motives through their own lens, and sometimes that lens is scratched by the harsh experiences they've endured.'' - Unknown

    "The lenses we see through reflect our experiences, and no lense so marred that it represents no truth; in our viewing of others, no matter what we understand of their actions, although incomplete, there remains truth in how we see them."

    "The Cosmic Spirit seeks not to restrain us
    But lifts us stage by stage to wider spaces.
    If we accept a home of our own making,
    Familiar habit makes for indolence.
    We must prepare for parting and leave-taking
    Or else remain the slave of permanence..."
    -- Hermann Hesse

    "Somebody broke into my house once, this is a good time to call the police, but mm mm, nope. The house was too nice. It was a real nice house, but they’d never believe i lived in it. They’d be like ‘He’s still here!" — Dave Chappelle

    "Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
    the world offers itself to your imagination,
    calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
    over and over announcing your place
    in the family of things.”
    ― Mary Oliver

    "And how should we behave during this Apocalypse? We should be unusually kind to one another, certainly. But we should also stop being so serious. Jokes help a lot. And get a dog, if you don’t already have one."
    Kurt Vonnegut - The Idea Killers, 1984.

    ''So, I never lose a sense of the whimsical and perilous charm of daily life, with its meetings, and words and accidents.'' - Logan Pearsall Smith

    Hmm, I haven't really considered accidents as having a ''perilous charm'' to them.

    "Sleep that knits up the ravell'd sleave of care, the death of each day's life, sore labour's bath, balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course, chief nourisher in life's feast."

    I am constantly amazed at the coincidences and serendipities of daily life. It's as if there is a deep underlying craving all around us for astounding things to happen. Things that appear accidental but turn out to be meant to be afterall. We are all witnesses to the miraculous emergence of magic and profundity from mundane ordinary living.

    “Night poured over the desert. It came suddenly, in purple. In the clear air, the stars drilled down out of the sky, reminding any thoughtful watcher that it is in the deserts and high places that religions are generated. When men see nothing but bottomless infinity over their heads they have always had a driving and desperate urge to find someone to put in the way.”
    ― Terry Pratchett , Jingo

    I haven't yet verified if this is an actual quote of Nietzsche, but...I'm going to pretend it is.
