Quotes

“It is not impossibilities which fill us with the deepest despair, but possibilities which we have failed to realize.”
Robert Mallet

“For man, the vast marvel is to be alive.  For man as for flower and beast and bird the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.  Whatever the unborn and the dead may know they cannot know the beauty, the marvel of being alive in the flesh.  The dead may look after the afterward. But the magnificent here and now of life in the flesh is ours alone, and ours only for a time.  We ought to dance with rapture that we should be alive and in the flesh and part of the living incarnate cosmos.”

– DH Lawrence

 

 

To be nobody but

yourself in a world

which is doing its best, night and day, to make you like

everybody else means to fight the hardest battle

which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

– E. E. Cummings
