"She rises while it is still dark..."
Proverbs 31:15

Simone Weil

"Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind."

Ernest Shackleton

”When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but, it is fear."

"The same dream returned each night until I dared not to go to sleep and grew quite ill. I dreamed I had a child, and even in the dream I saw it was my life, and it was an idiot, and I ran away. But it always crept onto my lap again, clutched at my clothes. Until I thought, if I could kiss it, whatever in it was my own, perhaps I could sleep. And I bent to its broken face, and it was horrible . . . but I kissed it. I think one must finally take one's life in one's arms."
Arthur Miller

"Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
