    “The time will come when diligent research over long periods will bring to light things which now lie hidden. A single lifetime, even though entirely devoted to the sky, would not be enough for the investigation of so vast a subject... And so this knowledge will be unfolded only through long successive ages. There will come a time when our descendants will be amazed that we did not know things that are so plain to them... Many discoveries are reserved for ages still to come, when memory of us will have been effaced.”
    Seneca, Natural Questions

    Jonathan Safran Foer
    “I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can't tell fast enough, the ears that aren't big enough, the eyes that can't take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”
    Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

    Dean Koontz
    “The geometry of judgment is a circle. Hate is a snake that turns to consume itself from the tail, a circle that diminishes to a point, then to nothing. Pride is such a snake, and envy, and greed. Love, however, is a hoop, a wheel, that rolls on forever. We are rescued by those whom we have rescued. The saved become the saviors of their saviors.”
    Dean Koontz, The Darkest Evening of the Year

    Jodi Picoult
    “There's always going to be bad stuff out there. But here's the amazing thing -- light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can't stick the dark into the light.”
    Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

    Shel Silverstein
    “It was missing a piece.
    And it was not happy.
    So it set off in search
    of its missing piece.
    And as it rolled
    it sang this song - "Oh I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
    I'm lookin' for my missin' piece
    Hi-dee-ho, here I go,
    Lookin' for my missin' piece.”
    shel silverstein

    John Steinbeck
    “I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment.”
    John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

    I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn
    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
    Marilyn Monroe

  • #11
    Jodi Picoult
    “It took me a lifetime to realizethings don't get lost if they don't have value- you don't miss what you don't care about.”

  • #12
    Ram Dass
    “I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn't create more suffering. I help people as a work on myself and I work on myself to help people.”
    ram dass

    Nicholas Sparks
    “There are guys who grow up thinking they'll settle down some distant time in the future, and there are guys who are ready for marriage as soon as they meet the right person. The former bore me, mainly because they're pathetic; and the latter, frankly are hard to find.”
    Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

    Stephen Schwartz
    “I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason
    Bringing something we must learn
    And we are led to those who help us most to grow
    If we let them and we help them in return.”
    Stephen Schwartz

  • #23
    Barbara De Angelis
    “Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.”
    Barbara De Angelis

    I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control

    Marilyn Monroe

  • #26
    Gloria Naylor
    “Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.”
    Gloria Naylor

  • #27
    John O'Donohue
    “Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”
    John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

    María Virginia Farinango
    “And I feel like the Queen of Water. I feel like water that transforms from a flowing river to a tranquil lake to a powerful waterfall to a freshwater spring to a meandering creek to a salty sea to raindrops gentle on your face to hard, stinging hail to frost on a mountaintop, and back to a river again.”
    Maria Virginia Farinango, The Queen of Water
