C. JoyBell C.
“I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my life, I am going to be with me and I don't want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own critic. It's high time that I accept all the great things about me.”
C. JoyBell C.

J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Libba Bray
“In each of us lie good and bad, light and dark, art and pain, choice and regret, cruelty and sacrifice. We’re each of us our own chiaroscuro, our own bit of illusion fighting to emerge into something solid, something real. We’ve got to forgive ourselves that. I must remember to forgive myself. Because there is a lot of grey to work with. No one can live in the light all the time.”
Libba Bray
