Let us be grateful...

Let us be grateful to the mirror for revealing to us our appearance only.

True Beauty...

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

Your own garden..

Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

~Veronica A. Shoffstall, "After a While," 1971

We shall die...

Drink, and dance and laugh and lie,
Love the reeling midnight through,
For tomorrow we shall die!
(But, alas, we never do.)

~Dorothy Parker

"Twill make...

'Twill make old women young and fresh,
Create new motions of the flesh.
And cause them long for you know what,
If they but taste of chocolate.
~James Wadworth

Anger....

The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn't angry enough.

~Bede Jarrett

For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness. ~Author Unknown

Ideals...

Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands. But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny.

~Carl Schurz, address, Faneuil Hall, Boston, 1859

In my garden...

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.

Home Sweet Home...

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.

~Henry Van Dyke

From earth and heaven...

Vegetables are the food of the earth; fruit seems more the food of the heavens.

I'm tired...

I am tired, Beloved,
of chafing my heart against
the want of you;
of squeezing it into little inkdrops,
And posting it.

~Amy Lowell, "The Letter"

Walking, working...

Walking, working, barely breathing
My thoughts, far away
Heart aching, mind racing
Sleep does not come easily, nor last long....

~Peter Winstanley
