“Admiration is confident in its vision of the heart." — Jen e. Limon
“The enemy is unknowingly of one accord with the erroneous target(s) of their wrath as the ascendancy of soul demands obstacle to necessitate self-control, which reveals the impotence of judgment, hatred and envy, thus training our spirits to trust the promise of victory.” ~ Jen e. Limon
“The deepest of level of communication is not communication, but communion. It is wordless ... beyond speech ... beyond concept.” ― Thomas Merton
“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” –Friedrich Nietzsche
“The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less sure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable mystery which it tries, forever vainly, to comprehend” ― Aldous Huxley
“Laugh, even when you feel too sick or too worn out or tired. Smile, even when you're trying not to cry and the tears are blurring your vision. Sing, even when people stare at you and tell you your voice is crappy. Trust, even when your heart begs you not to. Twirl, even when your mind makes no sense of what you see. Frolick, even when you are made fun of. Kiss, even when others are watching. Sleep, even when you're afraid of what the dreams might bring. Run, even when it feels like you can't run any more. And, always, remember, even when the memories pinch your heart. Because the pain of all your experience is what makes you the person you are now. And without your experience---you are an empty page, a blank notebook, a missing lyric. What makes you brave is your willingness to live through your terrible life and hold your head up high the next day. So don't live life in fear. Because you are stronger now, after all the crap has happened, than you ever were back before it started.” ― Alysha Speer
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” ~ Aldous Huxley
