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
Ring the bell that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in....
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
LIVE, LAUGH, 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
Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all
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.
