* Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what's happening out there. It's how you take it that counts.
* Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.
* The world is his... who enjoys it!
* Joy is in us... and not in things around!
Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life. ”
Fredenic Hunter on the power of words:
Strange this business of making a living from words. Very, very strange. Poets are craftsmen who cherish words. They use them like lenses. They muse on the words, put them under the kind of pressure the earth exerts in forming a diamond. They choose words with awe, slice them, polish them, they set each word in its line. They scrutinize its composition, they make it rhythmical. They anchor each line in its stanza, each stanza into the whole.
And, after all that care, and anchoring, their word concoction flies! It hits your brain... explodes inside your head. Firework insight! And you are never quite the same – at least for an hour.
Let noble thoughts come to us from every side.
