"The world is a looking glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face.
Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, an it is a jolly, kind companion.
" --Thackeray 'Vanity Fair' 2.
"There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go.

" --Sidney Howard 4.
"All changes have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die one life before we can enter unto another.

Don't believe what your eyes are telling you.
All they show is limitation.
Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly.

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there...
to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be but when you lock eyes with them, you know that every moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, will power or heart.
-Unknown 11.
"Knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge--broad, deep knowledge--is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low.
To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heart-throbs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
" --Helen Keller
