The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.

Aldous Huxley



Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Wendell Berry



Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.

Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.

Lao Tzu
