a quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.

  • "the happiness of this life depends less on what befalls you than the way in which you take it."
  • moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars."
  • "the heart is greater than the universe, for it can find pity in it for everything in the universe, and the universe itself can feel no pity."
  • "you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
  • "do more of what makes you happy."
  • "if you are always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be."
  • "progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything."
