Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country."

- President Theodore Roosevelt, 1908

Cool Quote.

 I never thought I would quote Bob Ross, a strange, tv, learn-to-paint, instructor but, I came across this quote by him I love.

The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe."

It's true.

You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.
— Jonathon Safran Foer, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close "

So very true!

"Some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity..." - Gilda Radner

 So, my mum suggested I add Satomi, a past exchange student from Japan that my mum was the representative for, to my Myspace and she accepted my add invite. On her profile was this quote:

"Love is not gazing at one another; love is looking together in the same direction together."

It made me pause and think. Why? Because it is true. It is interesting the places you find things and what will give you pause to think.
