Shel Silverstein
“Somebody has to go polish the stars,
They're looking a little bit dull.
Somebody has to go polish the stars,
For the eagles and starlings and gulls
Have all been complaining they're tarnished and worn,
They say they want new ones we cannot afford.
So please get your rags
And your polishing jars,
Somebody has to go polish the stars.”
Shel Silverstein, A Light in the Attic

Lewis Carroll
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
Lewis Carroll

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“You see I usually find myself among strangers because I drift here and there trying to forget the sad things that happened to me.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Eleanor Roosevelt
“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Fred Rogers
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
