“Illusion is the first of all pleasures.”
Voltaire, La Pucelle d'Orleans

“The strength of one's opinion should not exceed their knowledge on the matter.”
Eric Hirzel

“If words come from the heart, they will enter the heart. If they come from the tongue, they will not pass beyond the ears.”

“I fall in love all the time. With music, film, poetry. A smile. A bum. But rarely the whole of someone.”
Benedict Smith

Mandy Hale
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
