when the best things are right there for the taking.



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


There are some days when I think I'm going
to die from an overdose of satisfaction.
~Salvador Dali


It is astonishing how little one feels alone when one loves.
~John Bulwer


"Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do."
-- Rumi
