My mind," he said, "rebels at stagnation.
Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis,
and I am in my own proper atmosphere.
I can dispense then with artificial stimulants.
But I abhor the dull routine of existence.
I crave for mental exaltation.
That is why I have chosen my own particular profession, or rather created it,
for I am the only one in the world.”

Arthur Conan Doyle, The Sign of Four

To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;
to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart;
to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never;
in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--
this is my symphony.

WILLIAM HENRY CHANNING.

A being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

Albert Einstein

“If you love somebody, let them go.
If they return, they were always yours.
If they don't, they never were.”

Anon.

“It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations”

Kahil Gibran for MJ

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

I usually think of this quote whenever something real bad troubles me. I give credit to whoever said it.

Life is beautiful, as long as it consumes you. When it is rushing through you, destroying you, life is gorgeous, glorious. It’s when you burn a slow fire and save fuel, that life’s not worth having. - D. H. Lawrence

Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it. - George Orwell
