“I’m gonna hope, and hope, and hope, until one day I do something; Maybe then, we’ll be able to find that place that we have both wanted for so long, maybe then, we’ll have each other. I’m not reaching for stars anymore, I’m reaching for you, and honestly, that’s far more beautiful than a night full of dancing flames.”

— L.M. Montgomery, The Blue Castle 

“If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable.”

“…And I, infinitesimal being,
drunk with the great starry
void,
likeness, image of
mystery,
felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.”

— Pablo Neruda, Poetry

“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”

— Agatha Christie  

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”

— Robert Frost
