 I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, 1875 - 1926)

 I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Maya Angelou, 1928 - 2014

 If we deny our happiness, resist our satisfaction,

we lessen the importance of their deprivation.

We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure, but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have

the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world. To make injustice the only

measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.

Jack Gilbert, 1925 - 2012

Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the mot eloquent denunciations.

Aldous Huxley, 1894 - 1963

 As kids, our stock answer to most every question was nothing.

 No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself. There is one path in the world that none can walk but you. Where does it lead? Don't ask, Walk!

Friedrich Nietzche, 1844 - 1900
