„Discontent is a good thing: discontented people can modify and improve their worlds, leave them better, leave them different.“

—  Neil Gaiman English fantasy writer 1960
Context: Fiction can show you a different world. It can take you somewhere you've never been. Once you've visited other worlds, like those who ate fairy fruit, you can never be entirely content with the world that you grew up in. Discontent is a good thing: discontented people can modify and improve their worlds, leave them better, leave them different.

„Next to life we express gratitude for the gift of free agency.“

—  David O. McKay President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 1873 - 1970
Context: Next to life we express gratitude for the gift of free agency. When thou didst create man, thou placed within him part of thine omnipotence and bade him choose for himself. Liberty and conscience thus became a sacred part of human nature. Freedom not only to think, but to speak and act is a God-given privilege. Improvement Era (October 1958) pp 718-719
