BAUDELAIRE
Many a flower regretfully
Exhales perfume soft as secrets
In a profound solitude.

Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”  ― Mark Twain

Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of toast and tea

T.S. Eliot

Cats are like music. It’s foolish to try to explain their worth to those who don’t appreciate them.

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes you purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

James Allen
