"Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world.
I know because I've done it a thousand of times."
Mark Twain

Leaves of Grass

"I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, (...) and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait."
Walt Whitman


"Do you think that I count the days?
There is only one day left, always starting over: 
it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk."
Jean Paul-Sartre

WhatEver You Can't Do, I Will

"There's an end to every storm. 
Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. 
The wind will hush. The clouds will part. The rain will stop. The sky will clear in an instant and only then, in those quiet moments atfer the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it."
in "Grey's Anatomy"


"Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly."
Langston Hughes

Dream a Little Dream of Me

"The innocent sleep,
Sleep that knits up the raveled sleave of care,
The death of each day's life, sore labor's bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
Chief nourisher in life's feast."
William Shakespear

Colouring Lines

"When I was a child, my mother said to me, "If you become a soldier, you will be a general; if you become a monk, you'll end as Pope." Instead, I became a painter and now I am Picasso."
Pablo Picasso

Let's Talk

"I strip my walls 
And knock some down.
You and me,
Nothing around.

Make me chill
From head to toe.
Hold me 

Stronger than Strong Fear

"Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist.
Children already know that dragons exist.
Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed."
G.K. Chesterton

A Day at the Beach

"The waves were breaking one by one
I was alone with the sand and the foam
Of the sea that sung only for me."
Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen
