The secret of being Miserable
is to have the leisure to bother
about whether you are Happy or not.
~ Dale Carnegie

The human heart dares not stay away too long from that which hurt it most. There is a return journey to anguish that few of us are released from making.
~ Lillian Smith

If the lost word is lost, if the spent word is spent
If the unheard, unspoken
Word is unspoken, unheard;
Still is the spoken word, the Word unheard,
The Word without a word, the Word within
The world and for the world;
And the light shone in the darkness and
Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
About the center of the silent Word.

Oh my people, what have I done unto thee.

Where shall the word be found, where shall the word
Resound? Not here, there is not enough silence”
~ T.S. Eliot

All of us have ways in which
we mask and cover our pain.

Road to Success

If I had permitted my failures, or what seemed to me at the time a lack of success, to discourage me I cannot see any way in which I would ever have made progress.
~ Calvin Coolidge
