Smartphones, smart cars, smart buildings, smart appliances...

what’s left...oh yeah, people. That will be easy...all we need is

smart principals presidents...

Maybe we'll just stick with a smart car.

When you go to a conference and you see a male speaker who invented something big they get your attention.

When you go to a conference and see a female speaker who created another human from nothing, ehh.

Robert Bostick

When I tell bar audiences I used to be a pastor, they laugh at me. When I tell church people I am a comedian, they pray for me.

English is a funny language.

A fat chance and a slim chance are the same thing.

Jack Herbert

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.

Mark Twain

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and assign them tasks, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine De Saint-Exupery

The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands but of seeing with new eyes.

Just because we're missing the magic, beauty, and unfathomable mystery of this world, doesn't mean it can't happen.

Underneath the hood of the car that is America, there  are always a couple racist and sexist pistons pumping away. Yes the car is moving but its defective pistons always make the engine very troublesome.

Robert Bostick

White privilege doesn’t mean your life hasn’t been hard. It just means

the color of your skin isn’t one of the things that makes it harder.


Quoted from "Jimmy Kimmel Live"

"Racism in America is like dust in the air. It seems invisible— even if you're choking on it—until you let the sun in. Then you see it's everywhere. As long as we keep shining that light, we have a chance of cleaning it wherever it lands. But we have to stay vigilant because it's always still in the air."

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

No white person wants to change places with a black person.

They don’t even want to exchange places with me, and I’m rich.

Chris Rock

Quoted from "Jon Stewart Is Back to Weigh In" New York Times



The response to police misconduct is that they’re just bad apples as if we have to tolerate a few in every basket. Really? Is anyone ready to tolerate a few bad apple pilots?

We live together as rational human beings or die together as fools.

I often tell young people that if you see something you think

is wrong and it bothers you, then with steady, loving confrontation,

you can get others to see the wrong in whatever it is that you see.

Lynda Lowrey, Civil Rights Activist

There isn’t anyone you couldn’t learn to love if you knew their story.


The fact that everyone dies kills me.

The secret to a happy life is to run out of cash and air at the same time.

Bobby Layne

​Did anyone dig for China when they were kids? Our parents said if you dig all the way through the earth you’d come out in China. We had one kid on our block who dug down about ten feet digging for China and I use to sneak in and throw egg rolls in the hole. He thought he was getting close. “Only a few more feet Dad. I’m hitting something down here.”

Gary Shandling

Not only is your heart hopefully full of love, but it also pumps about 8,000 quarts of blood a day through its chambers. That works out to 332 quarts per hour or nearly 6 quarts per minute. It takes about one minute for all the blood in our body to make the round trip back to our heart. That's a lot of pumping going on and we're not aware of any of it. But wait, there's more. Our heart beats about 100,000 times in one day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times. Now are you impressed with what you are?

Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos - the trees, the clouds, everything.

Thich Nhat Hanh

A crisis is made by men, who enter into the crisis with their own prejudices, propensities, and predispositions. A crisis is the sum of intuition and blind spots, a blend of facts noted and facts ignored.

Michael Crichton

As a newspaper editor in the digital age, I always see if I can make a headline funny. The funnier the headline the more they click on it.


To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Eleanor Roosevelt
