Come to the edge of the earth, lift up your hands to the sky, and you will be taken up into the clouds. — Rabindranath Tagore
The most we can do is to write — intelligently, creatively, evocatively — about what it is like living in the world at this time. — Oliver Sacks
The truest philosophy, is not to long for anything in particular, but to accept everything as it comes, and find out the reason of it coming. — Marie Corelli
