“Today is an ephemeral ghost...

A strange amazing day that comes only once every four years. For the rest of the time it does not "exist."

In mundane terms, it marks a "leap" in time, when the calendar is adjusted to make up for extra seconds accumulated over the preceding three years due to the rotation of the earth. A day of temporal tune up!

But this day holds another secret—it contains one of those truly rare moments of delightful transience and light uncertainty that only exist on the razor edge of things, along a buzzing plane of quantum probability...

A day of unlocked potential.

Will you or won't you? Should you or shouldn't you?

Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability!”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Sanober  Khan
“I realized

June had never been
just a month

music...
never just a tremble
on my lips

warmth was never
merely a blanket.”
Sanober Khan, A touch, a tear, a tempest

John Cage
“Why is it that children, taught the names of the months and the fact that there are twelve of them, don't ask why the ninth is called the seventh (September), the tenth called the eight (October), the eleventh called the ninth (November), the twelfth called the tenth (December)?”
John Cage, M: Writings '67-'72

Amélie Nothomb
“يبدو أن كل الرجال يتشابهون بعد مرور أربعة أشهر”

“Today has been a day dropped out of June into April.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Windy Poplars

Conn Iggulden
“Winter is our time. They shut up their cities for the cold months. They put their horses in stables and sit around great fires in enormous houses of stone. If you want a bearskin, do you attack in summer when it is strong and fast, or cut its throat as it sleeps?”
Conn Iggulden, Khan: Empire of Silver

“Remember is the last month,' said Festival.
'Remember's not a month.'
'Of course it is,' said Festival. 'There are twelve months thirty days long and the five days at the end of the year that are left over are called Remember. It's when we all remember what happened in the past year, all the people who were born and all the people who died. You have to have Remember, otherwise you'd start the next year out of balance.”
Colin Thompson, How to Live Forever

Kamand Kojouri
“A poetess is not as selfish
as you assume.
After months of agonising
over her marriage of words—the bride—
and spaces—the groom,
she knows that as soon
as she has penned the poem,
it’s yours to consume.
So, without giving it a think,
she blows on the ink
and the letters fly away
like dandelions on a windy day,
landing on hands and lips,
on hearts and hips.
But more often than not,
you can easily spot
them trodden and forgotten,
becoming sodden and rotten.
Yet, she will continue to make
what’s others to take
because selfishness
is not the mark of a poetess.”
Kamand Kojouri

Lailah Gifty Akita
“The sacred time exist in days, weeks, months, seasons and years.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

Don Roff
“Authors must spend months, years making fantasy believable in a single work while reality runs rampant and complete chaos elsewhere.”
Don Roff

Shannon Wiersbitzky
“When God was making the months I think February was a mistake, like a burp. There it was, small, dark, and prickly. It had absolutely no redeeming qualities.”
Shannon Wiersbitzky, What Flowers Remember

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Minutes turn into hours 
that add up to days 
amounting to weeks 
that become  months 
melting into years
accumulating for decades
to pile up for centuries
and ultimately form minutes again―
just on a grander, divine scale.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes

Gillian Flynn
“There will be days you wish you’d never done it. And those
will be the good times, when it’s only days of regret and not
months.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Michael Finkel
“The uncertainty wore on him. The conditions in jail--the handcuffs, the noise, the filth, the crowding--mangled his senses. It's likely that, if one must be incarcerated in the United States, a jail in central Maine would be among the more tolerable spots, but to Knight it was torture. "Bedlam" is how he referred to the place. It never got dark in jail; at eleven p.m., the lights merely became a little duller. "I suspect," he noted, "more damage has been done to my sanity in jail, in months; than years, decades, in the woods.”
Michael Finkel, The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit

Mitch Albom
“Morrie closed his eyes. "I know, Mitch. You mustn't be afraid of my dying. I've had a good life, and we all know it's going to happen. I maybe have four or five months.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Christina Engela
“Ortez sauntered over to the nearest wall intercom. "Bridge, this is the captain -- what the hell's going on up there? I didn't schedule a combat drill for today." Hell, it occurred to him -- he hadn't scheduled any kind of drill for at least four months. On the other end of the line, young 2nd lieutenant Cedric Pankow, the com officer, let it fall.”
Christina Engela, Space Sucks!

Ben Lerner
“I had the endless day, months and months of endless days, and yet my return date bounded this sense of boundlessness, kept it from becoming threatening.”
Ben Lerner, Leaving the Atocha Station

Steven Magee
“After two months of horrible computer problems, I had concluded that the free Windows 10 installation was an unreliable lobotomized operating system as compared to Windows 7 on a 2011 HP G72-B50US laptop computer.”
Steven Magee

“After six months of building muscle mass I can now confirm that muscle mass creates increased tolerance to biologically harmful radiation sources.”
Steven Magee, Health Forensics

“...all "months" work together for the good of those who love the Lord! ...all the days of this month will work together for your goodness!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Lisa Kleypas
It rained in Hampshire yesterday, a soft autumn storm that brought down hardly any leaves. The dahlias are no longer in stem, and frost has withered the chrysanthemums, but the air smells divine, like old leaves and wet bark, and ripe apples. Have you ever noticed that each month has its own smell? May and October are the nicest-smelling months, in my opinion.
Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon

Lisa Kleypas
May and October, the best-smelling months? I'll make a case for December: evergreen, frost, wood smoke, cinnamon.
Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon

“August came like a slap in the face
She fucked all her heat into me
The nights became a living nightmare
Color blind sunsets had me mesmerized
Silent heavy air with no one inside
July let me go with the sea
She stood there handing me over to the future
I seemed farther than ever before
July she watched me die under the arms of August
September lived in harmony
She took me by the hand
And gave me one more chance
October and a century of life.”
Patricia Rezai, Submerged in a garden of lust
