“Better Associations:

If you associate yourself with a change maker,
Your life will by all means become better.
You will wink at challenges and begin to think.
In times of frustrations, you will not sink.

If you miss the way to a great destination,
Just look for those going to that direction.
Mount the shoulders of a giant believer
And you will become a great achiever.
People around you determine your speed.
They will influence the growth of your seed.

People you are around will decide your strength
And also the figure of your success’ length
I trust you want to become a better you.

It matters, what your associates plan to do.
It depends, where your companions want to go.
It relies on what your friends believe and know.

Quit friendships that build you nothing
Choose friends who bring out of you something
One iron sharpens another iron
Go along with great people and ride on.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Become a Better You

Sally Gardner
“Una volta, il mio capitano disse che nella vita si incontrano persone che, crediamo, diventeranno nostri compagni di viaggio, ma poi le perdiamo per strada. Altre persone da cui non ci aspettiamo molto, invece, scalano montagne insieme a noi. Il mio capitano concludeva - solo quando il bere lo faceva diventare sentimentale- che è meglio non chiedere al destino che cosa ha in serbo per noi, o dove porta la nostra strada.
«Ti basti stare in viaggio per essere felice» diceva. «Tutte le strade portano a una sola destinazione.»”
Sally Gardner, Tinder

Suman Pokhrel
“Out here
are books and magazines-
asleep, carrying the entire world in them,
and standing there
are walls and windows, staring at me,
and leaves of letters here-- about to go melting
quite like the heart itself,
and photographs-- lost in themselves
as if-
they're thinking of someone.”
Suman Pokhrel

Delia Owens
“Without breathing, Kya stared at the floor outside her cell and within a few seconds Sunday Justice stepped into view. His markings were surprisingly stark and soft at the same time. No hesitation this time, he stepped into her cell and walked up to her. She put the plate on the floor and he ate the chicken- pulled the drumstick right onto the floor- then lapped up the gravy. Skipped the butter beans. She smiled through it all, then wiped the floor clean with tissue.
He jumped on her bed, and a sweet sleep wrapped them together.”
Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing
