John Lubbock
“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. ... In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”
John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live in

Van Morrison
“And I shall watch the ferry boats, and they'll get high,
On a bluer ocean against tomorrow's sky,
And I will never grow so old again,
And I will walk and talk, in gardens all wet with rain.

- Sweet Thing
Van Morrison, Lit Up Inside: Selected Lyrics

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Airman's Odyssey

John O'Donohue
“All the possibilities of your human destiny are asleep in your soul. You are here to realize and honor these possibilities. When love comes in to your life, unrecognized dimensions of your destiny awaken and blossom and grow. Possibility is the secret heart of time.”
John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

Barbara Kingsolver
“The changes we dread most may contain our salvation.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Small Wonder
