Aphorismo

In a time of almost universal deceit, telling the truth becomes an act of rebellion.

-I've seen this attributed to both George Orwell and H.G. Wells. I'm betting Orwell.



Wasting time is wasting everything.

-unknown



Everything will be OK in the end. If its not OK, it's not the end.

-Unknown, but loved. . . deliciously morbid coming from anti-theist/nihilism instead of, say, Christianity.



Breath is the music that connects us to the outside world.

-Bartenief analysis; essential wisdom for dancers



Wisdom is justified of all her children

-Luke 7:35



If anyone wants a sheep, that is proof that he exists.. .

-Antoine de Saint Exupery



If we do not love life for our own sake and through others, it is futile to seek to justify it in any way.

-Simone de Beauvoir

I'll 3rd the Orwell attribution.
