like a thief reason sneaked in & sat amongst the lovers eager to give them advice. they were unwilling to listen, so reason kissed their feet & went on its way


our doubts are traitors, & make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt

~william shakespeare

why not seize the pleasure at once? how often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation?

~jane austen

congratulate yourselves if you have done something strange & extravagant & broken the monotony of a decorous age

~ralph waldo emerson

death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive.. the risk to be alive & express what we really are.

~don miguel riuz

it is not enough to have lived. we should be determined to live for something

~leo buscaglia

a person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world


we grow neither better nor worse as we grow old, but more like ourselves

~may lamberton becker

what is life but a series of inspired follies?

~george bernard shaw

but time growing old teaches all things


it is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. old age is life's parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny

~simone de beauvoir

i'm glad i haven't lived in vain

~saul bellow

sorry for sudden change from cheeriness to un-cheeriness, but i found all these cool sombre grey pictures at weheartit, & the quotes seemed appropriate.
