The worst moment for the atheist is when he is really thankful and has nobody to thank.
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
I saw them with these very eyes, as well as I see you.
Joan of Arc
The appeal to heaven breaks off.
The petals begin to fall, in self-forgiveness.
It is a flower. On this mountainside it is dying.
I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
All art is a revolt against man's fate.
Either move or be moved.
A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.
Of all the works of man I like best
Those which have been used.
The copper pots with their dents and flattened edges
The knives and forks whose wooden handles
Have been worn away by many hands: such forms
Seemed to me the noblest.
An aim in life is the only fortune worth the finding; and it is not to be found in foreign lands, but in the heart itself.
