He bought a candle and a match.

You spelled "practice" wrong its actually "practise" in this case.

[Pending] Ryan - To be honest...
Although work can be a bit of a drag sometimes, it's not all bad. It can bring the best out in some very important characteristics. Integrity, determination and honesty will take you very far in a career and in life. For example, I am currently doing typing test at work to make it look like I am busy!

[Pending] Andrew Jackson Jihad - People The Reckoning II
I've tried to know what word words to sing so many times. I tired to know what chords to play and I tried to make it rhyme and I tried to find the key that all good songs are in and I've tried to find the notes to make that great resounding din. But there's a bad man in everyone no matter who we are. There's a rapist and a nazi living in our tiny hearts. Child pornographers, and cannibals, and politicians too. There's someone in your head waiting to strangle.

[Pending] Craig Bednar - Typing Poem
Slowly watching my typing speed improve. Thirty-seven years old and slightly ashamed that my typing speed is lower than my age. I guess this isn't really a poem, oh well. Today I am typing.

[Pending] Trisha Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist
We really are weak creatures, but that's why we can strive to become stronger. Even if you feel it's useless, each step we take leads to something great. That's why I'm sure we'll be able to change. Because we're weak... and because death is inevitable. Humans try their best to live and end up becoming stronger.

[Pending] Joseph Fink - It Devours
That's a simplification. Just because something eventually doesn't work out doesn't mean it never worked out. It was working out fine until, not much later, it wasn't working out at all. Happiness is not canceled out by unhappiness. A relationship is not canceled out by its end.

[Pending] Johnson C. Frank - My Name Is Carnival
I've seen your face in every place that I'll be goin' I read your words like black hungry birds read every song Rise and fall Spin and call And my name Is carnival Sad music in the night Sings a scream of light out of And Voices you might hear appear and disappear In the forest Short and tall throw the ball And my name is carnival.

[Pending] Julian Koster - The Orbiting Human Circus
It's okay! I know what I'm doing! My first boyfriend was a polar bear. Well, we weren't exactly boyfriends. He used to impersonate a polar bear in an animal trainer's act. Yes, as we in the business know, most big-game trainers have a costume shill mixed in with the real animals. No one ever gets close enough to see it. Well, the boy didn't like me, but the real polar bears did. They love me!

[Pending] Julian Koster - The Orbiting Human Circus
It's another example of symbiosis in nature. Much as we feed the flea with our blood and it gives us beautiful songs in return, the janitor provides the old man nightly with the products of his imagination, and the old man provides him with a kind of hope.

[Pending] Julian Koster - The Orbiting Human Circus
And as the janitor talks, his features soften, and his body becomes more relaxes, and the expression of concern and intention on the night watchman's face slowly transforms into a look of interest and amusement. And, in a few moments, neither of them is the least bit aware of the fact that, minutes ago, Coco had nearly been removed from this world by a falling bucket, because he is being removed from the world now, by something much nicer.

[Pending] Sahil Kumar - You hate to see it
Regardless of how many times we experience failure, we can never become accustomed to it. No matter how many times you are taken down, you never become complacent with it. So, no matter how many times you lose, you really do hate to see it.

Orson Scott Card - Ender’s Game
The story is one that you and I will construct together in your memory. If the story means anything to you at all, then when you remember it afterward, think of it, not as something I created, but rather as something that we made together.

Orson Scott Card - Ender’s Game
Human beings are free except when humanity needs them. Maybe humanity needs you. To do something. Maybe humanity needs me-to find out what you're good for. We might both do despicable things, Ender, but if humankind survives, then we were good tools.

Orson Scott Card - Ender’s Game
I think that most of us, anyway, read these stories that we know are not "true" because we're hungry for another kind of truth: the mythic truth about human nature in general, the particular truth about those life-communities that define our own identity, and the most specific truth of all: our own self-story. Fiction, because it is not about someone who lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself.

Lysa T. - P31 OBS
We should spend less time suggesting to God how He should work things out, and more time asking Him to give us the trust and the faith to walk through whatever it is that is before us. Make the focus of your prayer: God give me the courage to face whatever it is I'm going to face today with Your perspective, and give me eyes to see Your activity in the midst.

N. Scott Momaday
All things in the plain are isolate; there is no confusion of objects in the eye, but one hill or one tree or one man. At the slightest elevation you can see to the end of the world. To look upon that landscape in the early morning, with the sun at your back, is to lose the sense of proportion. Your imagination comes to life, and this, you think, is where Creation was begun.

Kahlil Gibran - Sand and Foam: A Book of Aphorisms
The reality of the other person is not in what he reveals to you, but in what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says but rather to what he does not say.

Courtney Carver - Soulful Simplicity: How Living with Less Can Lead to So Much More
I thought I was so busy because the job demanded it, and because life demanded it, and because everyone wanted more from me. I didn't know it was my choice. I didn't realize this was the life I was choosing; the life I was creating.

Yuval Noah Harari [Sapiens - A Brief History of Humankind] - An Animal of No Significance
Three important revolutions shaped the course of history: the Cognitive Revolution kick-started history about 70,000 years ago. The agricultural Revolution sped it up about 12,000 years ago. The Scientific Revolution, which got under way only 500 years ago, may well end history and start something completely different. This book tells the story of how these three revolutions have affected humans and their fellow organisms.

David J. Schwartz - The Magic of Thinking Big
When you believe something is impossible, your mind goes to work for you to prove why. But when you believe, really believe, something can be done, your mind goes to work for you and helps you find the ways to do it.

Marcus Aurelius - I'll do it tomorrow
Think of all the years passed by in which you said to yourself "I'll do it tomorrow," and how the gods have again and again granted you periods of grace of which you have not availed yourself. It is time to realize that you are a member of the Universe, that you are born of Nature itself, and to know that a limit has been set to your time. Use every moment wisely, to perceive your inner refulgence, or 'twill be gone and nevermore within your reach.
