Quotations

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune
Without the words,
And never stops at all.
Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)


You do not need to leave your room. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924)

The universe is change, our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121 - 180)

Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.
Confucius (551BC - 479BC)

Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.
Plato (427BC - 347BC)

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.
Helen Keller (1880 - 1968)

Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore, So do our minutes hasten to their end.
William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
