„Fiction is based on reality unless you're a fairy-tale artist, you have to get your knowledge of life from somewhere. You have to know the material you're writing about before you alter it.“

—  Hunter Stockton Thompson, 2000s, Associated Press interview (2003) http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3404272/

„You know you're already brave. You don't get very far in life without having to be brave an awful lot.“

—  Ysabella Brave American singer 1979
Context: You know you're already brave. You don't get very far in life without having to be brave an awful lot. Because we all have our frightening moments and difficult trials and we don't have much of a choice but to get through 'em, and it takes a lot of bravery to do that. The most important thing about bravery is this — It's not about not being scared — it's about being scared and doing it anyway — that's bravery.
