„It's sort of like a mockery in a way of reality because they think everything is smiles and sweetness and flowers when there is something bitter to taste. And to pretend there isn't is foolish.“

Kontext: It's sort of like a mockery in a way of reality because they think everything is smiles and sweetness and flowers when there is something bitter to taste. And to pretend there isn't is foolish. I mean the ones that wonder around and know, at the same time, and yet wear flowers, and they deserve to wear flowers. And they've earned their smile... you can tell by people's eyes.

„I think the scariest things are hidden in plain view, meaning you can see something and your intuition will tell you there's something not right about this person or there's something about this situation that my gut is telling me isn't right and your rational mind will say "just get over it, everything is fine, you're fine."“

—  Chantal Quesnel Canadian actress 1971

Something could be so scary because it's right there, it's hidden in plain sight, and that to me is the psychology of fear.

„Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing“

—  Vince Lombardi American football player, coach, and executive 1913 - 1970

Actually spoken by 1950s UCLA football coach Henry Russell "Red" Sanders. Lombardi always denied he had said this although it is close to something he did say: "Winning isn't a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing."
