LA Signs/Quotes

 "I think of the earth as my home. If everyone thought this way, people might notice how foolish international friction is, and they would put an end to it. We are, after all, at a point where it is almost narrow-minded to think merely in geocentric terms.

 Signs placed on freeways around Los Angeles.
 "But there's something just as inevitable as death. And that's life. Think of the power of the universe — turning the Earth, growing the trees. That's the same power within you — if you'll only have the courage and the will to use it." - Charlie Chaplin

 "Do not let circumstances control you. You change your circumstances" - Jackie Chan
"Acting is merely the art of keeping a large number of people from coughing." - Ralph Richardson
