Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from
morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of
changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.
Charles Dickens

“We all run on two clocks. One is the outside clock, which ticks away our decades and brings us ceaselessly to the dry season. The other is the inside clock, where you are your own timekeeper and determine your own chronology, your own internal weather and your own rate of living. Sometimes the inner clock runs itself out long before the outer one, and you see a dead man going through the motions of living.”
Thomas Earnshaw

Nothing is true, nothing is lies, it all depends
on the crystal through which we see.
Spanish Proverb

Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. ~ Roald Dahl

… On The Summer Solstice …
“Whatever is dreamed on this night, will come to pass.”
William Shakespeare – Acknowledging the Magic of This Time
A Mid-Summernight’s Dream

“Time is the substance of which I am made. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river. Time is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger. It is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.” ~ Jorge Luis Borges

From your parents you learn love and laughter and how to put one foot before the other.
But when books are opened you discover that you have wings. – Helen Hayes –

Love and desire are the spirit’s wings to great deeds.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Time will explain it all.

Waste no tears over the griefs of yesterday.

One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.

Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.

Whoso neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future. – Euripides
