Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.

Neither worse then or better is a thing made by being praised.
If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.
Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.
Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.
I just want to be able to play and make people feel good with what I do. When you're thinking that way, anything can happen. And, usually, what happens is good.
