Oh, I have lived for ages, I'm a thousand turns of tide

I'm a thousand wakes of springtime and thousand infant cries

Jagged vacances, thick with ice

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944)

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
--Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)

Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
--Howard Thurman (1900-1981)

Beethoven can write music, thank God, but he can do nothing else on earth.
--Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827)

My god, so much I like to drink scotch that sometimes I think my name is Igor Stra-whiskey.
--Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)

Loving someone is action. Painting is action. Raising money for your documentary film is action. Thinking about your scientific theory is action. Playing catch with your daughter is action. Singing for 10,000 is action. Singing for one is action. Getting up from where you are sitting and going over to your writing pad and squeezing out five words is action. Not drinking when you are trying not to drink is action. Defending first principles is action. Making amends is action. Revising and submitting short stories from 20 years ago is action. Joining the Resistance is action. Creating is action.
--Eric Maisel

This life is not concerned with health but with healing.
This life is not about our being but our becoming.
This life is not about rest but about exercise.
We are not yet what we shall be but we are growing toward it.
The process is not yet finished but it is going on. This is not the end but it is the road.
--Martin Luther
