"A monkey trap is made of rope and a  coconut with a small hole and a shiny treasure inside. The hole is large enough to fit the monkey's hand, but too small for its fist when clasped around the shiny object. The trap works because the monkey, after grabbing the spoon refuseds to release the grip. We must be willing to unclench our fist to avoid old ideas from entrapping us. Much of what holds us back is our inability to give up past ways of doing things to consider new approaches. It all starts with an alert and questioning mind."- Jack Ma

"I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-aknowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and Iam honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be ceratin, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude." - Bruce Lee

"I do not believe in anything. Most people, even the educated, think that everybody must "believe" in something or other, that if one is not a theist, one must be a dogmatic atheist, and if one does not think Capitalism is perfect, must fervently believe in Socialism, and if one does not have blind faith in X, one must alternatively have blind faith in not-X, or the reverse of X. My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence." - Robert Anton Wilson
