Takes Lots of Experience (And Apologies)

“Teenagers want to be able to fight for what’s right – but finding out what’s right is now 90 percent of the battle.”

**Maggie Stiefvater

Verbal Silence

“Also she had the power of silent sympathy. That sounds rather dull, I know, but it’s not so dull as it sounds. It just means that a person is able to know that you are unhappy, and to love you extra on that account, without bothering you by telling you all the time how sorry she is for you.” 

**The Railway Children

Our Role In Life

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.”

**J.R.R.Tolkein

Best Intentions

“On the whole, human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time.”

**George Orwell

That pesky inner voice

“She generally gave herself very good advice,

(though she very seldom followed it).”

~~Lewis Carroll

 

Beauty is as Beauty Does

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful

lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the

knowledge that you are never alone.

–Audrey Hepburn
