    Rainer Maria Rilke
    “Extinguish my eyes, I'll go on seeing you.
    Seal my ears, I'll go on hearing you.
    And without feet I can make my way to you,
    without a mouth I can swear your name.

    Break off my arms, I'll take hold of you
    with my heart as with a hand.
    Stop my heart, and my brain will start to beat.
    And if you consume my brain with fire,
    I'll feel you burn in every drop of my blood.”
    Rainer Maria Rilke

    William W. Purkey
    “You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,

    William W. Purkey

    Paulo Coelho
    “But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.

    The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.”
    Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

    Let the stars and songs go.
    Let the faces and years go.
    Loosen your hands and say good-bye.”

    Percy Bysshe Shelley
    “What is life? Thoughts and feelings arise, with or without our will, and we employ words to express them. We are born, and our birth is unremembered and our infancy remembered but in fragments. We live on, and in living we lose the apprehension of life. How vain is it to think that words can penetrate the mystery of our being. Rightly used they may make evident our ignorance of ourselves, and this is much.”
    Percy Bysshe Shelley

    Roald Dahl
    “If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
    Roald Dahl, The Twits

  • #24
    Omar Khayyám
    “Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,
    Before we too into the Dust descend;
    Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie
    Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and--sans End!

    Alike for those who for To-day prepare,
    And those that after some To-morrow stare,
    A Muezzin from the Tower of Darkness cries
    "Fools! your Reward is neither Here nor There.”
    Omar Khayyám, رباعيات خيام

    Percy Bysshe Shelley
    Music, When Soft Voices Die

    Music, when soft voices die,
    Vibrates in the memory;
    Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
    Live within the sense they quicken.

    Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
    Are heap'd for the belovèd's bed;
    And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
    Love itself shall slumber on.”
    Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Complete Poems

  • #27
    Roald Dahl
    “...there are no secrets unless you keep them to yourself, and this was the greatest secret I had ever had to keep in my life so far.”
