"There is no greater love than the love for money"
-DiddlySquat 2011

Previously, my favorite quote was,

"There is no greater love than the love for DiddlySquat" by the same person. But then I realized that I do infact love money even more so than I love myself.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.


Coach Carter.

Oh, I love collecting quotes. They're all ones that I've found online so authors may be inaccurate.

"Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I’ve ever known." - Chuck Palahniuk

"How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink. We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn’t they paralyze us? How is it we can survive them, at least for a little while? We drive a car, we teach a class. How is it no one sees how deeply afraid we were, last night, this morning? Is it something we all hide from each other, by mutual consent? Or do we share the same secret without knowing it? Wear the same disguise?" - Don DeLillo

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same." - Emily Bronte

"The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read." - Charles Spurgeon

"If you aren’t cute, you may as well be clever." - David Sedaris

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." - Unknown

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived... this is the meaning of success." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have collected tons of quotes in my facebook page, :D but here's one that couldn't be more relevant to my life now:


If I go to university, I’m going to read what I want, and listen to what I want, and I’m going to look at paintings, and watch French films, and I’m going to talk to people who know lots about lots." -- Jenny (An Education)


and just another one that I love so much:
[quote]Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. And intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way." - Janet Fitch[/quote]

Nobody untrained in geometry may enter my house
- Plato

The popular idea of mathematics is that it is largely concerned with calculations. What many people don't realize -- and mathematicians at parties have given up correcting them -- is that mathematicians are often no better calculators, and sometimes worse, than the average non-mathematician. . . . Even the giants of mathematics suffer from this minor disability: 'Sir Isaac Newton,' said one observer, 'though so deep in algebra and fluxions, could not readily make up a common account; and, when he was Master of the Mint, used to get somebody else else to make up his accounts for him.'

-Karl Sabbagh

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively outnumbers the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here."

Richard Dawkins.
