“There is always something to do. There are hungry
people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to
comfort and make well. And while I don’t expect you to
save the world I do think it’s not asking too much for
you to love those with whom you sleep, share the
happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those
among you who are visionary and remove from your life
those who offer you depression, despair and
disrespect.” (nikki giovanni)
“Rich people spend a lot more money on their own problems, like baldness, than they do to fight malaria”
Bill Gates, criticizing Italy’s low levels of foreign aid in 2009-which had fallen by half from the year before- and blaming Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who is rumored to have undergone hair transplants (TIME, Feb 15, 2010)

“My kids are starting to notice I’m a little different from the other dads. “Why don’t you have a straight job like everyone else?” they asked me the other day. I told them this story: In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, “Look at me…I’m tall, and I’m straight, and I’m handsome. Look at you…you’re all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you.” And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, “Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest.” So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.”
Că tot răsfoiam notiţele, am zis să vă fac părtaşi la o parte mică: aia cu citate pe care le adun că poate le pun în vreo prezentare, poate mă vor face să râd la un moment dat sau pur şi simplu pentru că pe moment suna bine deşi înţelesul lor nu îmi e extrem de clar (da, cred ca vi se întâmplă şi vouă):
