Edna St. Vincent Millay
“If in the moonlight from the silent bough
Suddenly with precision speak your name
The nightingale, be not assured that now
His wing is limed and his wild virtue tame.
Beauty beyond all feathers that have flown
Is free; you shall not hood her to your wrist,
Nor sting her eyes, nor have her for your own
In any fashion; beauty billed and kissed
Is not your turtle; tread her like a dove -
She loves you not; she never heard of love.”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, Collected Poems: Edna St. Vincent Millay

Neale Donald Walsch
“You are afraid to die, and you’re afraid to live. What a way to exist.”
Neale Donald Walsch, Home with God: In a Life That Never Ends

“Who shall compass or fathom God's thought profound?
We can but praise, for we may not understand;
But there's no more beautiful riddle the whole world round
Than is hid in this heap of dust I hold in my hand.”
Celia Thaxter, An Island Garden

E.J. Patten
“Sometimes the hardest things to believe are the only things worth believing at al.”
E.J. Patten, Return to Exile

Orrin Woodward
“When the urgent crowds out the important, people urgently accomplish nothing of value.”
Orrin Woodward, LIFE
