Willa Cather
“The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.”
Willa Cather

Tom Robbins
“If you believe in peace, act peacefully; if you believe in love, acting lovingly; if you believe every which way, then act every which way, that's perfectly valid - but don't go out trying to sell your beliefs to the system.

Tom Robbins

Bernard M. Baruch
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”
Bernard M. Baruch

Blaise Pascal
“The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.”
