Jean Cocteau
The instinct of nearly all societies is to lock up anybody who is truly free. First, society begins by trying to beat you up. If this fails, they try to poison you. If this fails too, they finish by loading honors on your head.
Joan Didion
I am still committed to the idea that the ability to think for one’s self depends upon one’s mastery of the language.
In time of trouble, I had been trained since childhood, read, learn, work it up, go to the literature. Information was control.
Mario Andretti
If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.
Stoic teaching
You control how you respond to things.
Focus on what you can control.
