"Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired." - Erik H. Erikson
"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you." - Carl Sandburg
"People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built." - Eleanor Roosevelt
"Nothing else matters much -- not wealth, nor learning, nor even health -- without this gift: the spiritual capacity to keep zest in living. This is the creed of creeds, the final deposit and distillation of all important faiths: that you should be able to believe in life." - Harry Emerson Fosdick
I have been running
around, picking up shards, heart
shatters left behind
from you passing by.
I would rather broken grins,
pieces scattered here
at the sleepy lake of dreams
or there under stars.
