Arianna Huffington Quotes on Life:

Angels fly because they take themselves lightly.
Mainstream media tend to just mouth the conventional wisdom.
I think especially as women we need to recognize that feeling pressure is completely self-imposed.
The quest for knowledge is pursued at higher speeds with smarter tools today, but wisdom is found no more readily than it was three thousand years ago in the court of King Solomon.
Are we living our dream, or are we living somebody else’s dream?
We may not be able to witness our own eulogy, but we’re actually writing it all the time, every day.
