Robert Frost
“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.”
Robert Frost

Anaïs Nin
“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
Anaïs Nin

Dalai Lama XIV
“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama XIV

Henry David Thoreau
“The preachers and lecturers deal with men of straw, as they are men of straw themselves. Why, a free-spoken man, of sound lungs, cannot draw a long breath without causing your rotten institutions to come toppling down by the vacuum he makes. Your church is a baby-house made of blocks, and so of the state.

...The church, the state, the school, the magazine, think they are liberal and free! It is the freedom of a prison-yard.”
Henry David Thoreau, I to Myself: An Annotated Selection from the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau

Robert Frost
“Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.”
Robert Frost
