 Gail Pursell Elliott - “Situations come to pass, they never come to stay. And when we allow them to pass and disappear into the past like shadows, our vibrant spiritual selves remain, powerful in the present moment. That is the constant, the unchanging, in an ever changing world.”  
 Sorin Cerin - “In our existence, absolutely anything that would refer to its self, as evil to evil and good to good would lead to the annulment of the actual reference, so it is absolutely necessary for a final referent to exist, that is in no way the same as the reference.”  
 Sorin Cerin - “Man himself, if he hadnt the psychological capacity to deny, he couldnt understand the world, as the entire world is a big denial which continuously denies itself.”  
 Sorin Cerin - “Man through his essence is a dual being of Good and Evil that are a part of mans self that he can never chase away from him, because if he tries to chase away Evil to keep only Good, Man becomes an alien to himself, transforming the Good he leans to into the biggest and most evident Evil as possible, that of self determining as a being dehumanized by its own being.”  
 Sorin Cerin - “Absolutely any image reflected in mans self is a phenomenon. As it is not possible to speak of two human selves, we can neither speak of two identical phenomenon such as this one, nor of two identical human visions.”  
 Mark Twain - “I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”  
 Viola Spolin - “We learn through experience and experiencing, and no one teaches anyone anything.

 Henry James - “The power to guess the unseen from the seen, to trace the implications of things, to judge the whole piece by the pattern, the condition of feeling life in general so completely that you are well on your way to knowing any particular corner of it --this cluster of gifts may almost be said to constitute experience.”  
 Ernest Hemingway - “In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well oiled in the closet, but unused.”  
 Josh Billings - “Experience is a school where a man learns what a big fool he has been.”  
 Gita Bellin - “Experience is determined by yourself -- not the circumstances of your life.”
