Yoli liked a quote
I think we are and will always
be lonely people in a lonely
world under lonely stars.
We can never starve our loneliness.
We can only hope that by the
company of others,
it doesn't devour us.

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

American Pastoral by Philip Roth
"You figure "hey, it's Philip Roth. All sorts of awards. Might as well read his Pulitzer Prize winner. Can't be half bad, can it? can't be that bad. He's got other good stuff. This one must be good, too."

“Hold on to what is good, even if it is a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, even if it is a tree which stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, even if it is a long way from here.

Pueblo Blessing

Mahatma Gandhi
“I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.”

“THE SEA



In my room by the seashore,

I can tell without going to the window

That the boats sailing outside

Are carrying a cargo of watermelons.



Just the way I used to.

The sea likes to hold its mirror

The smell of seaweed

And the fishing-ground poles pulled ashore

Remind the children who live by the sea

Of nothing at all.”
Orhan Veli
