– Edward Snowden
His full quote (starting from 30:57 in the video): “You shouldn’t change your behaviour, because a government agency somewhere is doing the wrong thing. If we sacrifice our values because we’re afraid, we don’t care about those values.”
Snowden’s quote resonates very deeply with me (not because he shares my name), but because it makes absolute sense. If you allow yourself to be affected by terror, if you change your behaviour because you’re afraid, then the terrorists have already won.

Nice quote from Everton’s new rising young 18-year-old footballer, Tom Davies.
Find out what you are good at in life, and learn to be good at it. Just be yourself and enjoy your passions.

A great quote about how anger, if left unchecked, will eventually lead to one’s downfall.

A beautiful quote from a well-written anecdote about how a husband and wife eventually managed to agree on a compromise in their relationship.

– Johan Cruyff
I wasn’t even born yet to watch Johan play, only managed to see his son Jordi play for Manchester United in the late 1990s. But my father sums it up best: “Without Cruyff, Barcelona would not be what they are today.”
Pele may have been the greatest, most prolific goalscorer in football history, but no other player/manager like Cruyff has had such a massive impact at whatever team he plays for or manages for. Rest in peace.

A very inspiring quote from Reddit. I spent a few minutes pondering the lesson behind the quote and it’s very simple: Do things because you enjoy them. Don’t worry about the reasoning or justifications behind them.
I play videogames every day because I enjoy them. I watch football and pro wrestling because those are the sports I enjoy most. I read and learn as much as possible because I enjoy being surrounded by knowledge. I like potatoes because I enjoy eating them.
Enjoy what you do, and do what you enjoy.
– Satoru Iwata
Rest in peace. Iwata’s funeral is scheduled for 16 to 17 July, on the same weekend as EVO 2015. Hoping the Smash community will do some sort of tribute to honour him.
– Gianluigi Buffon, 2011
Goodbye, Andrea Pirlo. You were unable to win the Champions League in 2015 but your passion and love for the game was evident for all to see. Have fun in the MLS.
