“Day Is Too Dear – Just Listen – Give Me A Call – Believe”


“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”      (Ralph Waldo Emerson, Collected Poems and Translations)



“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen.  Just listen.  Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.   A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”     (Rachel Naomi Remem)



“I don’t want to live in a world where the strong rule and the weak cower.  I’d rather make a place where things are a little quieter.  Where trolls stay the hell under their bridges and where elves don’t come swooping out to snatch children from their cradles.  Where vampires respect the limits, and where the faeries mind their p’s and q’s.  My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden.  Conjure by it at your own risk.  When things get strange, when what goes bump in the night flicks on the lights, when no one else can help you, give me a call.  I’m in the book.”      (Jim Butcher, Storm Front)



“If you believe in yourself and with a tiny bit of magic, all your dreams can come true.”     (SpongeBob SquarePants)
