-Lord of the Rings, Tolkien
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eyes.
We should all plant some trees we never sit under.
According to the laws of aerodynamics, the bumble bee cannot fly. I guess no one bothered to tell the bee.
There is no 'saint' without a past, no 'sinner' without a future.
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
To see things in the seed, that is genius!
We build our future, thought by thought,
Or good or bad, and know it not,
Yet so the Universe is wrought.
Thought is another name for fate.
Choose, then, thy destiny and wait...
For love brings love, and hate brings hate.
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox
He who knows much about others may be learned,
but he understands himself is more intelligent.
He who controls others is powerful,
but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.
- Picard, The Drumhead, Star Trek, TNG

I talk and talk and talk, and I haven't taught people in 50 years what my father taught by example in one week.
- Mario Cuomo
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
Sir James Matthew Barrie
“Only those who truly love and who are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell in your own enchantment. Life throws stones at you, but your love and your dream change those stones into the flowers of discovery. Even if you lose, or are defeated by things, your triumph will always be exemplary. And if no one knows it, then there are places that do. People like you enrich the dreams of the worlds, and it is dreams that create history. People like you are unknowing transformers of things, protected by your own fairy-tale, by love.”
