- Willa Cather

The sun was like a great visiting presence that stimulated
and took its due from all animal energy.
When it flung wide its cloak and stepped down over
the edge of the fields at evening,
it left behind it a spent and exhausted world.
- Willa Cather

When kindness has left people, even for a few moments,
we become afraid of them as if their reason had left them.
When it has left a place where we have always found it,
it is like shipwreck; we drop from security into something
malevolent and bottomless.
- Willa Cather

another man, really; a man uncertain,
and puzzled, and in the dark like ourselves.
- Willa Cather

What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for

life hurrying past us and running away,
too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.
- Willa Cather

The miracles of the church seem to me to rest not so

so that for a moment our eyes can see and our ears
can hear what is there about us always.
- Willa Cather

Through humor, you can soften some

you can survive it.

For some of us, the world appears to provide
only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,
of love, of success, of appreciation.
For others, life is unlimited.
Their world expands with the generosity, compassion,
inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips

Some things will never seem adequate
no matter how hard we try.

Some people stay for awhile,

leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.

Every time you hear a bell ring,
it means that some angel's just got his wings.

Be a yardstick of quality.
Some people aren't used to an environment
where excellence is expected.

That some achieve great success,
is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.

Age does not protect you from love.
But love, to some extent, protects you from age.
- Anais Nin

Spend some time alone every day.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

It is only in adventure that some people
succeed in knowing themselves -
in finding themselves.

You can fool all the people some of the time,
and some of the people all the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

when all we really need to be happy
is someone or some thing to be enthusiastic about.

the unamiable heresy of some wise man.
- Henry David Thoreau

Often, we get stuck on a question
for which we can't find an acceptable answer.
That is a good time to consider asking a different question.
Every question is based on some assumptions -
usually invisible assumptions that we don't see, unless we go looking.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
