  • La fin de quelque chose ou tout décompte humains de plus que son, son début. Oui bien sûr, ce ne est que lui ou elle qui persévérera jusqu'à la fin ou détient plutôt ferme à sa foi qui sera enregistrée au dernier.

  • Humans worldwide speak different languages and animals speak the same. Animals remain anonymous and humans after self branding still ask what's in a name. If only we could become more carefree about our identities ensconced in our egos, we would be relaxed and be more dis-ease free. Be carefree and immunize, breathe in liberty & MickeyMize.
    Mickey Mehta
  • Peace is not so much a political mandate as it is a shared state of consciousness that remains elevated and intact only to the degree that those who value it volunteer their existence as living examples of the same. It does not end when jetliners are used as bombs to decimate skyscrapers, nor does it end when a father shoots to death his adolescent son and daughter. Peace ends with the unraveling of individual hope and the emergence of the will to worship violence as a healer of private and social dis-ease. It is, after all, not only nations and communities that need peace so desperately but individuals divided against other individuals and within themselves.
  • On seeing an ultrasound picture- It was an awkward situation because she was happy with it. I was like 'Oh God'. It was an odd looking thing. I couldn't say 'Oh, it looks like you' because that would be a dis.
    Karl Pilkington
