Quotation Saturday


Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life.
~Jean Paul Richter

It is always good to know, if only in passing, charming human beings. It refreshes one like flowers and woods and clear brooks.
~George Eliot

Learn to regard the souls around you as parts of some grand instrument. It is for each of us to know the keys and stops, that we may draw forth the harmonies that be sleeping in the silent octaves.

You must look into other people as well as AT them.
~Lord Chesterfield


Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
~Helen Keller

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little soon-forgotten charities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment in the disguise of a playful raillery, and the countless other infinitesimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The man is happiest who lives from day to day and asks no more, garnering the simple goodness of life.


Don't waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Surely there is something in the unruffled calm of nature that overawes our little anxieties and doubts; the sight of the deep-blue sky and the clustering stars above seems to impart a quiet to the mind.
~Jonathan Edwards

Thus each person by his fears gives wings to rumor, and, without any real source of apprehension, men fear what they themselves have imagined.

Let us be of good cheer, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those that never happen.
~James Russel Lowell


Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
~Harriet Tubman

Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
~Pamela Vaull Starr

Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
~Henry David Thoreau

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
~Lanston Hughes
