Robert Turpin
'Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each studded with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever'

Horace Mann

'...and love, it's not the easy thing,
the only baggage that you can bring,

All That You Can't Leave Behind...'


Remember What You Dream

'Unless we clap our hands in unison,
We shall not stamp our feet in joy
upon the head of sorrow.
So let us drink a cup before the dawn,
for this dawn will often break
when we no longer breathe.'

author unknown

'I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to rout all that was not life, and not, when I came to die, discover I had not lived.'

Henry David Thoreau
