A college professor turned me on to Thomas Hardy many years ago and I'll be forever grateful. Every time I read one of his novels, I marvel at how he can take the inhabitants of a quiet English country village and really, really put them through the ...more

Charlotte Brontë
“Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal — as we are!”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Bette Midler
“Cherish forever what makes you unique, cuz you're really a yawn if it goes”
Bette Midler

“To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world.”
Bill Wilson

Dr. Seuss
“Think and wonder, wonder and think.”
Dr. Seuss

Eleanor Roosevelt
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life
