Then I met a wise woman who told me that, to get a perspective of where I stood, I had to leave behind what I had and where I stood and stand opposite, looking back.— Seung Chan Lim | realizingempathy.com
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away.
Of all our truest hopes and desires for our work is that, what we find, we ourselves never knew. It came as a shock. It came as a surprise. It was new. We could never have known what we were going to do before we did it, and in that sense, we discover too. Here is what I’ve got to say to you: there are things in your life you will see; there are stories you will hear; if you don’t write them down, if you don’t make the picture, they won’t get seen, they won’t get told.— Emmet Gowin
Part of determining what is of value in life comes from figuring out what isn’t worth your time.—

The national line [#1forFun] is a goal, a constant reminder to ourselves why we can tell travellers it’s more fun here than anywhere else. It needs everyone’s support for it to stay true—we need to make sure people’s experiences in our country are positive, enjoyable, and most of all, fun.— Ramon Jimenez, Jr.

The direction of web design is changing. It’s not just styling something to make it look good; it’s about the bigger picture. Designers can’t just take their knowledge of print design and apply it to the web. Web designers have to think differently; they have to push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible.— Farah Assir, Designer at The New York Times
Don’t be discouraged by the overnight success of peers. This can lead to impatience and bad-decision making. I’ve seen a few designers flame out as they try to keep up with self-promoters with large web-based followings. Hard work is definitely the only way to succeed, but balance is also important. I turn to cycling on the roads and trails of Colorado. I also play trumpet in two ensembles and carve letters into stone. The creative energy has to come from somewhere, and if it’s constantly depleted, it’s not going to recharge.— Steve Matteson, Typographer
A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of its government is tyranny!— Thomas Jefferson
