Selected from Laura Moncur's Motivational Quotations - July 05, 2014
You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it.

With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labour and to wait.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

Perhaps, but the man did commit suicide.
Hugh Macleod, How To Be Creative: 29, 08-22-04  
Lasting change is a series of compromises. And compromise is all right, as long your values don't change.
Jane Goodall (1934 - )
