Willa Cather
“Men travel faster now, but I do not know if they go to better things.”
Willa Cather, Death Comes for the Archbishop

Henry David Thoreau
“God himself culminates in the present moment, and will never be more divine in the lapse of all the ages.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Dr. Seuss
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

Bernard of Clairvaux
“Learn the lesson that, if you are to do the work of a prophet, what you need is not a sceptre but a hoe.”
Bernard of Clairvaux

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“... active love is a harsh and fearful thing compared with the love in dreams. Love in dreams thirsts for immediate action, quickly performed, and with everyone watching. Indeed, it will go as far as the giving even of one's life, provided it does not take long but is soon over, as on stage, and eveyone is looking on and praising. Whereas active love is labor and persistence, and for some people, perhaps, a whole science.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
