“We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.”

Worry about whether you're right now. Tomorrow can wait.”
Cora Carmack, All Played Out

“If we could push ajar the gates of life,
And stand within, and all God's workings see,
We could interpret all this doubt and strife,
And for each mystery could find a key.
But not today. Then be content, poor heart!
God's plans, like lilies pure and white, unfold:
We must not tear the close-shut leaves apart--
Time will reveal the calyxes of gold.”
Mary Riley Smith

E.M. Forster

A sua viagem estava quase a terminar. Estava a chegar à sua nova casa. Ele tinha revelado o homem em Alec, era agora a vez de Alec revelar nele o herói. Conhecia o chamamento, e qual devia ser a resposta. Tinham de viver fora de qualquer classe, sem família ou dinheiro; tinham de trabalhar e manter-se juntos até à morte. Mas a Inglaterra pertencia-lhes. Isso, além da companhia um do outro era a sua recompensa. Os seus ares e os seus céus eram deles, não dos milhões de receosos que possuem pequenos cubículos abafados, mas nunca as suas próprias almas.
