“The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.”
John Greenleaf Whittier
Maria liked a quote
One Day by David Nicholls
“What are you going to do with your life?" In one way or another it seemed that people had been asking her this forever; teachers, her parents, friends at three in the morning, but the question had never seemed this pressing and still she was no nearer an answer... "Live each day as if it's your last', that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn't practical. Better by far to be good and courageous and bold and to make difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.”
David Nicholls

“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
Dalai Lama XIV

“I have a secret secret admirer. Not only is her identity a secret—but so is the fact that she admires me.

Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

“We may not have known each other our whole lives but we've definitely lived them in parallel”
Fisher Amelie, Callum & Harper

Stephen Fry
“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.

Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.”
Stephen Fry

John Greenleaf Whittier
“The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.”
John Greenleaf Whittier, Poetry

Phoebe Stone
“Some people are just not meant to be in this world. It's just too much for them.”
Phoebe Stone, The Boy on Cinnamon Street
