For the night was not impartial. No, the night loved some more than others, served some more than others.
Eudora Welty (1909 - )  
I have a right to my anger, and I don't want anybody telling me I shouldn't be, that it's not nice to be, and that something's wrong with me because I get angry.
Maxine Waters, in Brian Lanker, I Dream a World, 1989  
Providence has hidden a charm in difficult undertakings which is appreciated only by those who dare to grapple with them.
Anne-Sophie Swetchine, The Writings of Madame Swetchine, 1869  
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011), Stanford Commencement Adress, 2005
