 "O you will take whatever’s offered
And dream that all the world’s a friend,
Suffer as your mother suffered,
Be as broken in the end."

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939),
Irish Poet & Playwright

"God made the world round so we would never 

be able to see too far down the road."

 

 Isak Dinesen

"I've looked at life from both sides now

from win and lose and still somehow

it's life's illusions I recall.

I really don't know life at all."

Would you stay, if she promised you heaven?

Dreams Unwind,

Lose my mind.

 

Love never again to find,

Life's unkind.

"When you knew that it was over
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of his hair.

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind.

Lovers walk along a shore,
And leave their footprints in the sand.

 

The fragment of a song -
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?

Why did life go so quickly?
Was it something that I said?

 

As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind."

 

Legrand & Bergman

I would rather be ashes than dust....

I would rather that my spark should burn in a brilliant blaze

than it should be stifled by dry-rot.

I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow,

than a sleepy and permanent planet.

The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.

I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.

I shall use my time.

 

Jack London
