Κ.Π. Καβάφης
“Κι αν δεν μπορείς να κάμεις την ζωή σου όπως την θέλεις,
τούτο προσπάθησε τουλάχιστον
όσο μπορείς: μην την εξευτελίζεις.”

Louis L'Amour
“If there is something, though, if there is...well, I believe in the things I love...the feel of a good horse under me, the blue along those mountains over yonder, the firm, confident feel of a good gunbutt in my hand, the way the red gold of your hair looks against your throat.
The creak of a saddle in the hot sun and the long riding, the way you feel when you come to the top of a ridge and look down across miles and miles of land you have never seen, or maybe no man has ever seen. I believe in the pleasant sound of running water, the way the leaves turn red in the fall. I believe in the smell of autumn leaves burning, and the crackle of a burning log. Sort of sounds like it was chuckling over the memories of a time when it was a tree.
I like the sound of rain on a roof, and the look of a fire in a fireplace, and the embers of a campfire and coffee in the morning. I believe in the solid, hearty, healthy feel of a of a fist landing, the feel of a girl in my arms, warm and close. Those are the things that matter.”
Louis L'Amour, Westward the Tide

Thomas  Moore
“Christina is one of those people swamped by her emotions, clouded by what Jung might call "anima moods"...unable to breath and see the greater picture of her life, a way of understanding events, and a list of priorities --- her own livable value system. Such a philosophy of life would be a spiritual achievement for her. Just as a formal religion might offer a bigger picture, a personal philosophy can also help.”
Thomas Moore, A Religion of One's Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World
