Worldsick

“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.” 

**Judith Thurman

Blocking the Possible

“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.”

~~Chinese Proverb

The Good at Heart

“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals,

because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I

keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that

people are really good at heart.”

-Anne Frank

This means to much more when you understand that Miss Frank wrote this in her diary as a young Jewish girl hiding from the Nazis with her family in WWII.  She did not survive the camps, but up to the last entry she maintained her faith in the world. If she can believe in humanity, who can then do otherwise?

Change: A Difficult Thing to Swallow

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.”

–Reinhold Niebuhr

Dreaming by Day

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”

–T. E. Lawrence

‎”Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

— St. Francis of Assisi
