" I found in this language [Tagalog] four qualities of the four greatest languages of the world- Hebrew, Greek, Latin, and Spanish. It has the mysticism and difficulties of the Hebrew; the distinctive terms of the Greek not only in the common but also in the proper names; the fullness and elegance of Latin; and the civility and courtesy of Spanish "

" The subtraction of beauty as a standard for art hardly signals a decline of the authority of beauty. Rather, it testifies to a decline in the belief that there is something called art. "

" When I speak to women, I also talk about grace, one of my favorite words. If you’re going to live a bold life, and if you’re going to take risks and try to step out of your comfort zone, you are going to occasionally fail, make some missteps and disappoint yourself. There are going to be times where you’re not going to be the mom you want to be, and sometimes you’re not going to be the C.E.O. you want to be. Grace is meeting those moments on the journey, then picking yourself back up, being humble enough to learn and not being too hard on yourself. You need something that is going to ground you and comfort you. For me, that’s grace. "

- Michelle Peluso, CEO of Gilt Groupe

I’m striving for this type of emotional impact in this world. And this is exactly why I have so much love and so much passion in this field of the arts.

" I like people who have a sense of individuality. I love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural and that’s real. "

" I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal. "
