''Ignorance is bliss.''
''We are nothing more or less than what we choose to reveal'' Francis Underwood
''To eat less is healthy, to speak less is wisdom, and to sleep less is worship.''

''Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.''
