Follow your heart wherever it take you,
and be happy. Life is brief and very fragile,
and only loaned to us for awhile.
Wake up every morning with the thought that
something wonderful is about to happen.

– Flavia

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.  – Kurt Vonnegut

There are three material things… essential to life.  These are pure air, water and earth.  There are three immaterial things… essential to life.  These are admiration, hope and love.  Admiration– the power of discerning and taking delight in what is beautiful in visible form and lovely in human character; and necessarily striving to produce what is beautiful in form and to become what is lovely in character.  Hope– the recognition, by true foresight, of better things to be reached hereafter, whether by ourselves or others; necessarily issuing in the straightforward and undisappointable effort to advance, according to our proper power, the gaining of them.  Love– both of family and neighbor, faithful and satisfied.

John Ruskin


Believe me. Sometimes when life looks to be at its grimmest, there’s a light hidden at the heart of things.

— Clive Barker, Arabat


“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words and never stops at all.”

Emily Dickinson

we can beat

a hardship today.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.    — Eleanor Roosevelt

“One good solid hope’s worth a cart-load of certainties.”
