The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other's welcome. And say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was yourself. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to yourself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.

(Derek Walcott, 1930 -  )

Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow prople to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.

( Octavia Butler, 1947 - 2006 )

A test: try living the life of a good person and see how it suits you. Be the one happy with her fate, rejoicing his acts of justice, and bent on deeds of kindness.

(Marcus Aurelius, 121 - 180)

I am not what I have or what I do;
But what I was I am, I am even I.
Therefore myself is that one only thing
I hold to use or waste, to keep or give;
My sole possession every day I live.

(Christina Rossetti, 1830 - 1894)

We have all known the long loneliness, and we have learned that the only     solution is love and that love comes with community.
