Random Quotations Meme

From reverend mommy, who I don't actually know, but whose blog I enjoy:

It's an easy one to do. The rules: Go here and look through random quotes until you find 5 that you think reflect who you are or what you believe. Feel free to use the "New Random Quotations" button at the bottom of the page. I hereby tag all my friends with blogs.

Here's mine:

"Life happens too fast for you ever to think about it. If you could just persuade people of this, but they insist on amassing information."
Kurt Vonnegut
US novelist (1922 - )

The arts must be considered an essential element of education... They are tools for living life reflectively, joyfully and with the ability to shape the future."

"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent."

Mahatma Gandhi

"In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you."
Leo Tolstoy
Russian mystic & novelist (1828 - 1910)

"The world is now too small for anything but brotherhood."

Plus a few more good ones:

"The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye. The more light you shine on it, the more it will contract."

"If dracula can't see his reflection in the mirror, how come his hair is always so neatly combed?"
