“All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.”

 

“As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think.”

 

“At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough. You don’t need to photograph, paint or even remember it. It is enough.”

 

“If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.”

 

“In this country, American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate.”
