The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.Stephen King

Because Father said clocks slay time. He said time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.William Faulkner

The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer
" Short review: Increasingly I am finding books of real worth that need multiple readings. I am intentionally scheduling these books to be re-read and most of them are even richer the second time. This is my first reading of The Pursuit of God, but... " Read more of this review »

I come from a conservative background, meaning; naked bodies were equated with seductive intent. This book enabled me to see that nakedness has many faces, one of which is simple transparency. The women in this book bare their souls which is much mor...more

“And like flowers in the fields, that make wonderful views, when we stand side-by-side in our wonderful hues..

We all make a beauty so wonderfully true.
We are special and different, and just the same, too!

So whenever you look at your beautiful skin, from your wiggling toes to your giggling grin...

Think how lucky you are that the skin you live in, so beautifully holds the "You" who's within.”
Michael Tyler, The Skin You Live In

Frederick Buechner
“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
Frederick Buechner, Now and Then: A Memoir of Vocation

“There are some people that you just can't help but look at. Not necessarily because they're beautiful, just because you see them, and you know, you just know, that they're gonna be something special. You can just feel it when you're in their presence.”
― L

John O'Donohue
“One of the tasks of true friendship is to listen compassionately and creatively to the hidden silences. Often secrets are not revealed in words, they lie concealed in the silence between the words or in the depth of what is unsayable between two people.”
John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

Julie Delpy
“I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.”
Julie Delpy, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset: Two Screenplays
