A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.

Paulo Coelho



People who say money doesn’t matter are like people who say cake doesn’t matter—it’s probably because they’ve already had a few slices.

Lemony Snicket



We learned to be patient observers like the owl. We learned cleverness from the crow, and courage from the jay, who will attack an owl ten times its size to drive it off its territory. But above all of them ranked the chickadee because of its indomitable spirit.

Tom Brown, Jr.



I too have known loneliness.

I too have known what it is to feel misunderstood,

rejected, and not at all


Oh, mother earth,

your comfort is great.

Your arms never withhold.

It has saved my life to know this.

Your rivers flowing, your roses,

opening in the morning.

Oh, motions of tenderness!

Mary Oliver


Dead End

Time does not give one much leeway: it thrusts us forward from behind, blows us through the narrow tunnel of the present into the future. But space is broad, teeming with possibilities, positions, intersections, passages, detours, U-turns, dead-ends, one-way streets. Too many possibilities, indeed.

Susan Sontag
