“The world is full of mystery and magic. We just need to look, listen and believe that wondrous things are still possible.”
Vonnie Winslow Crist, The Greener Forest

“Faërie contains many things besides elves and fays, and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants, or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, Tolkien On Fairy-stories

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
St. Francis Of Assisi

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora

“You will be transformed by what you read.”
Deepak Chopra

“The world is full of mystery and magic. We just need to look, listen and believe that wondrous things are still possible.”
