A Quote by Jane Smiley on life, people, summer, and winter

After a long day, folk rest at night.  After a long summer, folk play games and sit about in the winter.  After a long life folk sit about the fire and stay warm, for the chill of death is upon them, and even the thickest bearskin can't keep off the shivering.

A Quote by Barbara Kingsolver on awareness, eternity, infinity, and people

Awareness is everything. ... People worry a lot more about the eternity after their deaths than the eternity that happened before they were born.  But it's the same amount of infinity, rolling out in all directions from where we stand.

A Quote by Jackson Browne on people

I don't know what happens when people die
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear
That I can't sing
I can't help listening

More than a career, I feel that I've got a function.  I see things in a much more holistic way.  Some people bake the bread, and some people write the songs.

People talk over situations,
Read books, repeat quotations,
Draw conclusions on the wall.

A Quote by Aldous Huxley on awareness, people, reality, and words

Every individual is at once the beneficiary and the victim of the linguistic tradition into which he has been born - the beneficiary inasmuch as language gives access to the accumulated records of other people's experience, the victim in so far as it confirms him in the belief that reduced awareness is the only awareness and as it bedevils his sense of reality, so that he is all too apt to take his concepts for data, his words for actual things.

A Quote by Jeremy Clarkson on public, belief, life, death, smoke, accidents, risk, people, avoid, and security

The "public" seems to have bought into this belief that life can, and should, be run without risk, that all accidents are avoidable, and that death is something that only happens to people who eat meat and smoke.
