They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
Children - Kahlil Gibran
Health is certainly more valuable than money, because it is by health that money is procured.
- Samuel Johnson
How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true; But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face.
When you are old - W.B.Yeats
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
- George Gordon Byron
That is bright as a lamp
Simple, as a ring
You are like the night
With its stillness and constellations
Your silence is that of a star
As remote and candid
I Like For You To Be Still - Pablo Neruda
The water understands
It wets my foot, but prettily,
It chills my life, but wittily,
It is not disconcerted,
It is not broken-hearted:
Well used, it decketh joy,
Adorneth, doubleth joy:
Ill used, it will destroy,
In perfect time and measure
With a face of golden pleasure
Water - Ralph Waldo Emerson
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother. I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
- Abraham Lincoln
Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Charm. It's a sort of bloom on a woman. If you have it, you don't need to have anything else; and if you don't have it, it doesn't much matter what else you have.
- J.M. Barrie
木のもとに 汁も膾も 桜かな
灯消えたり卓上に 鮓の香 迷ふ
灯火忽明暗 寿司的香气 幽幽弥漫开
It was the policy of the good old gentlemen to make his children feel that home was the happiest place in the world. And I value this delicious home feeling as one of the choicest gifts a parent can bestow.
Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.
