A Quote by Richard David Bach on decisions, joy, value, intimacy, marriage, and list

Two things I do value a lot, intimacy and the capacity for joy, didn't seem to be on anyone else's list. I felt like the stranger in a strange land, and decided I'd better not marry the natives.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on justice, learning, teachers, and teaching

Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know it just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on church, country, decisions, evil, good, and parenthood

Good and evil are not what our parents told us, not what our church tells us, or our country, not what anybody else tells us! All of us decide good and evil for ourselves, automatically, by choosing what we want to do!

Each of us is in truth an unlimited idea of freedom. Everything that limits us we have to put aside.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on charm, thought, games, chess, winning, and surprise

That she won the game startled me cold. The way she won, the pattern of her thought on the chessboard, charmed me warm again and then some.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on dreams, love, money, people, play, power, sex, and trying

Other people think they know what you are: glamour, sex, money, power, love. It may be a press agent dream which has nothing to do with you, maybe it's something you don't even like, but that's what they think you are. People rush at you from all sides, they think they're going to get these things if they touch you. It's scary, so you build walls around yourself, thick glass walls while you're trying to think, trying to catch your breath. You know who you are inside, but people outside see something different. You can choose to become the image, and let go of who you are, or continue as you are and feel phony when you play the image.
