but revelations, and the lavishness of someone’s soul inspired and ablaze.”

But when you praise beauty in others your own beauty deepens.”

“They are not long,
the days of wine and roses.
Out of a misty dream,
our path emerges for a while,
then closes,
within a dream.”

“The simple secret of happiness.
Whatever you are doing, don’t let the past move your mind; don’t let future disturb you. Because the past is no more, and the future is not yet. To live in the memories, to live in the imagination, is to live in the non-existential. And when you are living in the non-existential, you are missing that which is existential. Naturally you will be miserable, because you will miss your whole life.” 
 ~ Osho

~ The best people… Ernest Hemingway

“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.”  

 ~ Ernest Hemingway
