And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
Fitzgerald, F. Scott (1925) The Great Gatsby
Beginnings are sudden, but also insidious.
They creep up on you sideways, they keep to the shadows, they lurk unrecognized.
Then, later, they spring.
Atwood, M. (2000) The Blind Assassin
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
If you wake up in the morning, it is a good day.
Morris, H. (2018) The Tattooist of Auschwitz
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.
Tolkien, J. R. R. (1955) The Lord of the Rings
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Mass, W. (2010) The Candymakers
I'm sick of just liking people. I wish to God I could meet somebody I could respect.
Salinger, J.D. (1961) Franny and Zooey
is only one day in all the days that will ever be.
but what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today.
hemingway, e. (1940) for whom the bell tolls
to see is to enter a universe of beings which display themselves, and they would not do this if they could not be hidden behind each other or behind me. in other words: to look at an object is to inhabit it, and from this habitation to grasp all things in terms of the aspect which they present to it. but in so far as i see those things too, they remain abodes open to my gaze, and being potentially lodged in them, i already perceive from various angles the central object of my present vision. thus every object is the mirror of all others.
merleau-ponty, m. (1945) the phenomenology of perception
