Quotations Meme (courtesy of lark_ascending)
Instructions: Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 and look through random quotations until you find 5 that you think reflect who you are or what you believe. Then post them in your journal. (NB you get to cheat a bit by scrolling down and checking which collections you'd like your quotations to come from).

My favorite thing is to go where I've never been.
    Diane Arbus (1923 - 1971)
I have learned to use the word 'impossible' with the greatest caution.
    Wernher von Braun (1912 - 1977)
A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.
    Roald Dahl (1916 - 1990), (Willy Wonka) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Imagination is more important than knowledge...
    Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected
by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you 
don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or 
to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
    Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign, 1999
