I had

"I had a desperate need, which I think most artists do, to communicate...to feel
that whatever it is inside me, cutting or going crazy or whatever it is I'm feeling,
... there's something inside of us, we wanna reach out, we wanna talk to each other, 
we wanna throw our emotions and our thoughts out and hope that we make some 
sense or we get an answer... we want to just emote and hope there'll be a response.”
― Angelina Jolie              "For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed 
that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the
wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck 
about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always 
believed that they were far more intelligent than manfor precisely the same reasons.” 
― Douglas AdamsThe Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy               The major problem
one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems 
with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to 
get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those
people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To
summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made 
President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” 
― Douglas AdamsThe Restaurant at the End of the Universe                     “What to do
if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground underneath a giant boulder you can't 
move, with no hope of rescue. Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to 
so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your current
circumstances seems more likely, consider how lucky you are that it won't be troubling 
you much longer.”
