“There are many forms of love as there is moments in time, and you are capable of feeling them all at different stages of your life.”
Shannon Alder

Hermann Hesse

As every flower fades and as all youth
Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth,
Blooms in its day and may not last forever.
Since life may summon us at every age
Be ready, heart, for parting, new endeavor,
Be ready bravely and without remorse
To find new light that old ties cannot give.
In all beginnings dwells a magic force
For guarding us and helping us to live.

Serenely let us move to distant places
And let no sentiments of home detain us.
The Cosmic Spirit seeks not to restrain us
But lifts us stage by stage to wider spaces.
If we accept a home of our own making,
Familiar habit makes for indolence.
We must prepare for parting and leave-taking
Or else remain the slaves of permanence.

Even the hour of our death may send
Us speeding on to fresh and newer spaces,
And life may summon us to newer races.
So be it, heart: bid farewell without end.”
Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game

Elisabeth Elliot
“George Macdonald said, 'If you knew what God knows about death you would clap your listless hands', but instead I find old people in North America just buying this whole youth obsession. I think growing older is a wonderful privilege. I want to learn to glorify God in every stage of my life.”
Elisabeth Elliot

“I was transformed the day
My ego shattered,
And all the superficial, material
Things that mattered
To me before,
Suddenly ceased
To matter.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Let your heart shine even more than your face. The beautiful contents of your heart can never be forgotten, but your face will be a history.”

Patricia Highsmith
“Fantasy, an unflagging optimism is necessary for a writer at all stages of this rough game. A kind of madness is therefore necessary, when there is every logical reason for a state of depression and discouragement. Perhaps the fact that I can react with utter gloom to this is what keeps me from being psychotic and keeps me merely neurotic. I am doing quite a good day's work today. But I am also aware of the madness that actually sustains me, and I am not made more comfortable or happy by it.”
Patricia Highsmith

Kate McGahan
“Another form of bargaining, which many people do, and she did too, is to replay the final painful moments over and over in her head as if by doing so she could eventually create a different outcome.
It is natural to replay in your mind the details. Deep in your heart you know what is true. Your mouth speaks the words, “My cat has died,” but you still don’t really want to believe it. You go over and over and over it in your mind. Your heart replays the scene for you for the express purpose of teaching you to accept what has happened. While your heart tries to “rewire” your mind to accept it, your mind keeps looking for a different answer. It doesn’t like the truth. Like anything else, when you hear it enough, you finally accept that it is true.”
Kate McGahan, Jack McAfghan: Return from Rainbow Bridge: An Afterlife Story of Loss, Love and Renewal

“And though our roots belong to the same tree, our branches have grown in different directions.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“A transition period is a period between two transition periods.”
George Stigler

Hanya Yanagihara
“ hard it is to keep alive someone who doesn't want to stay alive. First you try logic ("You have so much to live for"), and then you try guilt ("You owe me"), and then you try anger, and threats, and pleading ("I'm old; don't do this to an old man"). But then, once they agree, it is necessary that you, the cajoler, move into the realm of self-deception, because you can see that it is costing them, you can see how much they don't want to be here..”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

“Love has three stages:
- The beginning, where we bring our 'Sunday Best';
- The middle, when we question the depths of falling all in;
- And the end, when our inner child breaks free, joyously unencumbered by what love has bestowed upon us.”
James M Stoffel, Jr

Steven Magee
“The Industrial Revolution appears to be in its final stages and it will be remembered as a time where industrial stock markets were at historic highs at the same time that many natural processes were shutting down, including the next generation of humans.”
Steven Magee

“At a stage in my life where I am slowly learning to enjoy my own company. Keeping my circle small and stop entertaining unnecessary things that can't grow my mind.”
Hopal Green

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Life is in stages.
There is a stage where, like grasshoppers, we hop from grass to grass.
And another, where we move from grass to grace.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

Michael Bassey Johnson

Sunday Adelaja
