10/2/21      “If you’re not doing some things that are crazy, then you’re doing the wrong things.” - Larry Page
10/3/21      “Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.” - Helen Keller
10/4/21      "Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence." - Louis Pasteur
10/5/21      "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." - Marcel Proust
10/6/21      "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all." - Emily Dickinson
10/7/21      "If only we try to live sincerely, it will go well with us, even though we are certain to experience real sorrow, and great disappointments, and also will probably commit great faults and do wrong things, but it certainly is true, that it is better to be high-spirited, even though one makes more mistakes than to be narrow-minded and all too prudent. It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done." - Vincent Van Gogh
10/8/21      "The most worthwhile thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others." - Robert Baden-Powell

10/11/21      "Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you." - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
10/12/21      "I, for one, know of no sweeter sight for a man's eyes than his own country." - Homer
10/13/21      "Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own." - Mother Teresa
10/14/21      "One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion." - Simone de Beauvoir
10/15/21      "Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
10/16/21      "The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge." - Bertrand Russell
10/17/21      Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life. The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don't settle. - Steve Jobs
10/18/21      "The most worthwhile thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others." - Robert Baden-Powell
10/19/21      "If I can stop one heart from breaking,I shall not live in vain;

10/21/21      "The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something." - Franklin D. Roosevelt
10/22/21      "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." - Barack Obama
