Random Quotes Meme

I wasn’t really tagged per se, but I’m going to participate anyway. 😛

The rules: “Go here and look through random quotes until you find 5 that you think reflect who you are or what you believe.”

Ok, here’s my 5:

We are bits of stellar matter that got cold by accident, bits of a star gone wrong.
Sir Arthur Eddington (1882 – 1944)

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars… Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 – 1968)

We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck… But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.
Ellen Goodman (1941 – )

Life is a moderately good play with a badly written third act.
Truman Capote (1924 – 1984)

I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.
Ayn Rand (1905 – 1982), Anthem, 1946

    No part is made insignificant by the whole.
