And the Universe would not be complete, and as beautiful...without you! Love starts with oneself. Appreciate, respect, and celebrate your total uniqueness...as you do all others." ~Surf Reyes

"A culture of music education starts in a school gradually. It comes, always, from a teacher. It doesn't come because you say, "it has to be there because music is good." If you don't have a good teacher, you don't have anything, it doesn't matter whether it's music, maths, English, whatever it is. If you have a good teacher, that will happen. The big difference with music is people don't see it as essential." ~Richard Gill, on ABC RN's 'What Keeps Me Awake'

"The slope takes you to the windmill, but effort takes you nowhere." ~Fernando Pessoa

"There are, indeed, few merrier spectacles than that of many windmills bickering together in a fresh breeze over a woody country; their halting alacrity of movement, their pleasant business, making bread all day with uncouth gesticulation; their air, gigantically human, as of a creature half alive, put a spirit of romance into the tamest landscape." ~Robert Louis Stevenson

"There are times when each of us has to have some gumption to take a stand as to what we wish to preserve or change in order to maintain our self-respect and not be as "a reed shaken with the wind" (Matt. 11:7) . . . . We lose much credibility and strength, and we risk being weighed on an uneven balance, when, Don Quixote-like, we go around "tilting windmills". ~James E. Faust

"Windmills, which are used in the great plains of Holland and North Germany to supply the want of falling water, afford another instance of the action of velocity. The sails are driven by air in motion - by wind." ~Hermann von Helmholtz

Keanu Reeves Quotes

“I cannot be part of a world ...Where men dress their wives as prostitutes by showing everything that should be cherished.
Where there is no concept of honor and dignity, and one can only rely on those when they say “I promise”. Where women do not want children, and men don’t want a family." ~Keanu Reeves

"I always felt like I'm not from this generation. I just live in it. Because the way my mindset differs from the majority, you'd think I come from a different dimension. That's why I keep things to myself because a lot of people won't understand me." ~Keanu Reeves
