“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.” ~ Ernest Dowson The Poems and Prose of Ernest Dowson Wishing you all the very best of weekends!
“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 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.”
“Our goal is not just an environment of clean air and water and scenic beauty.The objective is an environment of decency, quality and mutual respect for all other human beings and all other living creatures.”
“Whoever finds love beneath hurt and grief disappears into emptiness with a thousand new disguises… Lovers find secret places inside this violent world where they make transactions with beauty.” ~ Rumi
