“There are days when I get lost in the business of surviving in this world. I stop and enter my closet of writing, at first I feel like an outsider reading my own thoughts, and then I am magically reunited with myself. Writing reminds me that I am a spirit, that there will always be a new chance tomorrow, if I stay steadfast today. – Marsha Gomes-Mckie”
Marsha Gomes-Mckie

“Love is the most permanent of things, nothing can really shake it, I wished I knew that years ago”
Marsha Gomes-Mckie

“Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, "Do it again"; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

“To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.”
G.K. Chesterton

“Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom. I am not, as will be seen, in any sense attacking logic: I only say that this danger does lie in logic, not in imagination.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
Maya Angelou

“Each of us, when our day's work is done, must seek our ideal, whether it be love or pinochle or lobster à la Newburg, or the sweet silence of the musty bookshelves.”
O. Henry
