To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases, it will never pass into nothingness

John Keats

Ring the bell that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in....

Leonard Cohen

I may not have gone where I intended to go,

but I think I have ended up where I needed to be


Oh, my friend , all that you see of me is just a shell the rest belongs to love



Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift that’s why it is called: present


If you worry about what your mother will think when she reads your work, your mother will likely be the only one to ever read it.


Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans

John Lennon

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

A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving in a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore; but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water.  You do not work the lake out.  It is an experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept mystery.

John Keats
