"It is difficult to believe in the dreadful but quiet war
lurking just below the serene facade of nature."
Charles Darwin


"Be like water making its way through cracks. 
Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it."
Bruce Lee

Haunting Past

"So I find words I never thought to speak
In streets I never thought I should revisit
When I left my body on a distant shore."
T.S. Elliot


"There are moments when, even to the sober eye of Reason, 
the world of our sad Humanity may assume the semblance of a Hell (...) 
they must sleep or they will devour us."
Edgar Allan Poe


"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,
for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."
Leonardo da Vinci


"We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, 
but we have not yet learned the simple art of living together as brothers."
Martin Luther King

At Heart

"People where you live", the little prince said,
 "grow five thousand roses in one garden ... yet they don't find what they're looking for."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery


"In order to travel  it's enough to be. I go from day to day, as if from station to station, in the train of my body, or my destination, overlooking the streets and the squares, on gestures and faces, always the same and always different, as, 
after all, landscapes are."
Fernando Pessoa


"You are the gull, (...), strong and wild, 
fond of the storm and the wind, flying far out to sea, and happy all alone."
Louisa May Alcott
