Arabic Proverb  (via xnoheroesx)
"Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart. If you always give, you will always have."
Chinese Proverb
"So here’s the picture. I have in front of me a bound bunch of printed pages, the first of which has the string of letters ‘The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien’ on it. I engage with this entity by interpreting the string of letters printed throughout it in a certain way. My act of interpretation makes it true that there is a work of fiction; that I interpret the fiction as involving the character Bilbo Baggins makes it true that Bilbo exists. No more is needed of the world to ensure that the fictional character Bilbo exists."
Ross Cameron
