– James Russell Lowell
“Times change so quickly that if you and I don’t keep up with the times, we’ll find ourselves with an umbrella in our hand, over our head, when the sun is out. Or we’ll find ourselves standing in the rain, with the umbrella inside the door.”
― Malcolm X
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
― Kurt Vonnegut
― Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon
“To be or not to be is not a question of compromise. Either you be or you don’t be.”
Learn to be The unmingling River, flowing through the sea Of this World’s brackish waters. Thou too, keep Thy course unbroken ‘mid the briny deep Of all its lures, its lusts and vanity.
"Moral Emblems, with Aphorisms, Adages, and Proverbs, of All Ages and Nations"
