"We are the causes of our own suffering."
"Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known."
"There is a power under your control that is greater than poverty, greater than the lack of education, greater than all your fears and superstitions combined. It is the power to take possession of your own mind and direct it to whatever ends you may desire."
- Andrew Carnegie
To my darling daughter, April. The human heart has hidden treasures, in secret kept, in silence sealed. The thought, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, whose charms were broken if revealed. From your loving father."
- Definitely, Maybe
"I'm all about empowerment. I empower my cherrios to live in a constant state of fear by creating an environment of irrational random terror."
- Sue Sylvester, Glee
"Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
- Alfred Pennyworth, The Dark Knight
