The sky was clear -- remarkably clear -- and the twinkling of all the stars seemed to be but throbs of one body, timed by a common pulse.
- Thomas Hardy

Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star...
- e. e. cummings

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
- Marcel Proust

America makes prodigious mistakes, America has colossal faults, but one thing cannot be denied: America is always on the move. She may be going to Hell, of course, but at least she isn't standing still.
- e. e. cummings

Dead you will lie and never memory
of you will there be nor desire
into the aftertime-for you do not
share in the roses of Pieria,
but invisible too in Hades' house
you will go your way among dim shapes.
Having been breathed out.
