Blue...!!!

The sky was a midnight-blue, like warm, deep, blue water, and the moon seemed to lie on it like a water-lily, floating forward with an invisible current.

Is it too much to ask ??

Is it too much to ask that women be spared the daily struggle for superhuman beauty in order to offer it to the caresses of a subhumanly ugly mate?  

~Germaine Greer, The Female Eunuch, 1970

Its journey into forever....

Her eyes were of different colors, the left as brown as autumn, the right as gray as Atlantic wind. Both seemed alive with questions that would never be voiced, as if no words yet existed with which to frame them.... Her face was as fresh as an apple and as delicate as blossom.... Her mouth never curved into a smile. God, it seemed, had withheld that possibility.... She was a beam of starlight trapped in flesh and awaiting only the moment when it would continue on its journey into forever.

Flowers don't worry..

Flowers don't worry about how the're going to bloom.  They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.

A World lives in you..!!

You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.

Burn up human hearts..!!

Love is no respecter of age or practicality
Neither morality: unabashed
She enters where she will
Unheeding that her immortal fires
Burn up human hearts...


~Phillip Pulfrey, from Beyond Me, www.originals.net

The meeting of your sparks!

When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.

Flying feet...!!

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;

No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet


To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.



~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage

Eyes...full of questions...!!

Her eyes were of different colors, the left as brown as autumn, the right as gray as Atlantic wind. Both seemed alive with questions that would never be voiced, as if no words yet existed with which to frame them.... Her face was as fresh as an apple and as delicate as blossom.... Her mouth never curved into a smile. God, it seemed, had withheld that possibility.... She was a beam of starlight trapped in flesh and awaiting only the moment when it would continue on its journey into forever.

Imperfect..

Try as hard as we may for perfection, the net result of our labors is an amazing variety of imperfectness.  We are surprised at our own versatility in being able to fail in so many different ways.

Faded thoughts...

As the evening sky faded from a salmon color to a sort of flint gray, I thought back to the salmon I caught that morning, and how gray he was, and how I named him Flint.

Manipulate and Revitalize..

A good, real, unrestrained, hearty laugh is a sort of glorified internal massage, performed rapidly and automatically.  It manipulates and revitalizes corners and unexplored crannies of the system that are unresponsive to most other exercise methods.  

~Author unknown, from an editorial in New-York Tribune, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren

First morning moment.

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours.  No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen.  And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot.  The possibility is always there. 

~Monica Baldwin

Music can...!!

Music can noble hints impart,
Engender fury, kindle love,
With unsuspected eloquence can move,
And manage all the man with secret art.


~Joseph Addison

Can't touch the stars???

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

Generation grows....

As is the generation of leaves, so is that of humanity.
The wind scatters the leaves on the ground, but the live timber
Burgeons with leaves again in the season of spring returning.
So one generation of men will grow while another dies.


~Homer, Iliad

The locks of a beauty..!!

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many.  

~Oliver Wendell Holmes

For attractive lips....!!!

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone....


~Sam Levenson

Welcome Beauty...!!!

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament.  Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.  

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dynamites - Teamwork

One piece of log creates a small fire, adequate to warm you up, add just a few more pieces to blast an immense bonfire, large enough to warm up your entire circle of friends; needless to say that individuality counts but teamwork dynamites.

Symbol of Identity..

An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance for joy.... One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity.  

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Invisible to the eye...

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Destiny...



On a windswept hill
by a billowing sea,
my destiny sits
and waits for me.
