Virginia Woolf
“What is meant by “reality”? It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable—now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying. It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech—and then there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Fear both the heat and the cold of your heart, and try to have patience, if you can.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-Earth

Henry David Thoreau
“Wildness is the preservation of the World.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walking

Friedrich Nietzsche
“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
