"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."Rainn Wilson on Khalil Gibran

"If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had.

"Sadness is but a wall between two gardens."Rainn Wilson on Khalil Gibran
"And I do believe that the way to change a society, to uplift people - not just their spirit, but to uplift their society and economic base - is through education."

"My dad wanted to name me after Rainier Maria Rilke, the poet."
"My dad was always such a frustrated artist. He always worked very hard to support his family, doing a bunch of ridiculous jobs. He wanted to be a painter, but then he also wrote science-fiction novels in his spare time."
"The founder of the Mona Foundation actually knew my dad for years, and the more I learned about it, the more I realized I really found the perfect charity. It sponsors schools and educational initiatives all over the planet."
