  1. Alyssa Tushman:

    This industry, which is cruelly ironic, is on its knees. And we need a seat at the table. We never got one.

  2. Maren Morris:

    A few months earlier and a continent away the same was true in Manchester, England. The painful truth is that this year in just those two events, 81 music lovers, just like us, went out to a night of music and never came home, so, tonight, to honor those we lost, Eric, Brothers Osbourne and I, who all performed in Las Vegas that tragic weekend, want to come together and honor the memory of those music-loving souls so cruelly taken from us.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    You will often meet many mean people who will enjoy to make fun of you, deliberately put you down, and brutally crush your confidence. They will try to strip you off your dignity and pride, ruthlessly. Yet you must remember that one's dignity may be vandalized, assaulted, and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless and until it is surrendered by its owner. Never surrender your dignity and pride.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Oh how smoothly, how swiftly and horribly, how cruelly and thoroughly, one discovers the powers and prowess of Maya, the Supreme power of Illusions! With a simple sleight of her hand, léger de main, everything changes in a moment; electrically charged, awesome and exciting years of life shrink to moments - just to realize that all that fascinating reality had been a dream. Perhaps all that had happened previously had been a continuous sequence of beautiful images that one would admire and fall in love with, and to realize that it’s all the game of dreams, illusions and Maya. The reality also strikes, at the same moment, that everything one would still experience in the future, would see with one’s eyes and feel with one’s hands, up to the moment of one’s death — that everything is not going to be any different in substance, or any different in kind. Why would it be? It’s always all a game, all foam and all dreams. It’s Maya, the whole lovely and frightful, delicious and desperate kaleidoscope of life with its searing delights, intertwined with its searing sorrows, the amazing show that has been ongoing since the dawn of Universe.

  5. William Shakespeare:

    Pity is the virtue of the law, and none but tyrants use it cruelly.
