Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance and Other Essays

Anne Frank
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Kurt Vonnegut
“And so it goes...”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Daphne du Maurier
“Happiness is not a possession to be prized, it is a quality of thought, a state of mind.”
Daphne Du Maurier, Rebecca

Daphne du Maurier
“I suppose sooner or later in the life of everyone comes a moment of trial. We all of us have our particular devil who rides us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end.”
