Frances Hodgson Burnett
“One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts—just mere thoughts—are as powerful as electric batteries—as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in you may never get over it as long as you live... surprising things can happen to any one who, when a disagreeable or discouraged thought comes into his mind, just has the sense to remember in time and push it out by putting in an agreeable determinedly courageous one. Two things cannot be in one place.

"Where you tend a rose, my lad, A thistle cannot grow.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Dejan Stojanovic
“Too often, feelings arrive too soon, waiting for thoughts that often come too late.”

“Time is cruel like life. It slows down so that you can truly experience the worst moments of it. Only if you make it through them do you get to say ‘It all happened so fast.”
J.A. Redmerski, The Mayfair Moon

E.A. Bucchianeri
“If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what’s right.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

J.A. Redmerski
“I believe there’s someone out there for everyone,” he {Isaac} says, “and when you meet that person, sometimes you know right away they are who you were meant to be with. And sometimes, years can go by before you let yourself believe that the feeling you’ve had about a person for so long, is actually love. And what a waste that is.”
J.A. Redmerski, Kindred

“Maybe I’m a human, but I’m a me-and-Ma as well.”
Emma Donoghue, Room

J.A. Redmerski
“And when someone grows up knowing so little of what real love feels like, whether from family, or friends, or the love of a companion, that person starts to believe that they weren’t meant to be loved, that good things will never happen to them. They start to believe that whenever something good does happen, it’s inevitable that something bad will come along to replace it.”
J.A. Redmerski, Kindred

Stephen Richards
“Reflect your thoughts and watch others mirror them back to you.”

Yann Martel
“At moments of wonder, it is easy to avoid small thinking, to entertain thoughts that span the universe, that capture both thunder and tinkle, thick and thin, the near and the far.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Society never advances. It recedes as fast on one side as it gains on the other. It undergoes continual changes; it is barbarous, it is civilized, it is christianized, it is rich, it is scientific; but this change is not amelioration. For every thing that is given, something is taken. Society acquires new arts, and loses old instincts. What a contrast between the well-clad, reading, writing, thinking American, with a watch, a pencil, and a bill of exchange in his pocket, and the naked New Zealander, whose property is a club, a spear, a mat, and an undivided twentieth of a shed to sleep under! But compare the health of the two men, and you shall see that the white man has lost his aboriginal strength. If the traveller tell us truly, strike the savage with a broad axe, and in a day or two the flesh shall unite and heal as if you struck the blow into soft pitch, and the same blow shall send the white to his grave.

The civilized man has built a coach, but has lost the use of his feet. He is supported on crutches, but lacks so much support of muscle. He has a fine Geneva watch, but he fails of the skill to tell the hour by the sun. A Greenwich nautical almanac he has, and so being sure of the information when he wants it, the man in the street does not know a star in the sky. The solstice he does not observe; the equinox he knows as little; and the whole bright calendar of the year is without a dial in his mind. His note-books impair his memory; his libraries overload his wit; the insurance-office increases the number of accidents; and it may be a question whether machinery does not encumber; whether we have not lost by refinement some energy, by a Christianity entrenched in establishments and forms, some vigor of wild virtue. For every Stoic was a Stoic; but in Christendom where is the Christian?”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Sometimes the only way to leave is out the front door”
Delisa J. Bracy

“... people, who always look for what they don’t have, don’t see what they have and dream of what they don’t really need.”
Ani Chibukhchyan, Emotional Moments

“Idyllic memories are merely a jeweled noose.”
Orlando Ricardo Menes

“Far from being incompatible, politics and Christianity are, in reality, inseparable. What don't mix are Christianity and social apathy.
(p. 117)”
Steve Chalke, Intelligent Church: A Journey Towards Christ-Centred Community
