- Candace Rose Rardon

"Adventure is a path. Real adventure - self-determined, self-motivated, often risky - forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind - and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black & white."
- Mark Jenkins

- Assata Shakur

- Thomas Edison

"By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired."
- Kafka

"Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place."
- Unknown

"The only dream worth having is to dream that you will live while you are alive, and die only when you are dead. To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."
- Arundhati Roy

"Remember: you are made of the sea and the stars. There is nothing that you have not already been through. Eternity grows in your hair. Your skin is made of stardust. You are a magnificent collection of everything that ever was and everything that ever will be. We all are."
- Kim Dinan

"Let's face it. We're undone by each other. And if we're not, we're missing something. If this seems so clearly the case with grief, it is only because it was already the case with desire. One does not always stay intact. It may be that one wants to, or does, but it may also be that despite one's best efforts, one is undone, in the face of the other, by the touch, by the scent, by the feel, by the prospect of the touch, by the memory of the feel."
- Judith Butler

- Harriet Tubman

"Life can be hard. That gives it meaning. I want to be challenged because difficulty increases the significance of success. Heaven seems boring compared to Earth. An absence of conflict means no worries, no problems. Solving problems can be fun. 
Still, I am not faithless. I have faith in myself and in other people. It is enough for me to love and to be loved. I am not afraid of punishment after death. I am afraid of wasting precious life. 
After all, I've already won the lottery. My number came up when I was born. Existence was my prize. I was given a chance to play the game, but it turns out that it's not fair. 
I started five spaces ahead, but I'm still not sure where to go. The distance I move is more important than where I end up. No one will win, but that's no reason to quit."
- Lane Spangler

"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all."
- Leo Rosten
