The world has always been in an uproar,
and it always will be.

Choose to interact peacefully with everyone -
especially those whose instinct is not to be peaceful.

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

urges men to struggle against poverty,
ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.
- Helen Keller

and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.

But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

who does not believe me naive or innocent,
who has the courage to treat me like a woman.
- Anais Nin

exactly where the camera had to be,
because it was my story.
