if you listen, you can hear it grow - 2014.03.31

Keep growing quietly and seriously throughout your whole development; 
you cannot disturb it more rudely than by looking outward 
and expecting from outside replies to questions
that only your inmost feeling in your most hushed hour can perhaps answer.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Letters to a Young Poet

one of a thousand dreaming cats - 2014.03.30

If enough of us dream,
if a bare thousand of us dream,
we can change the world.
We can dream it anew!

~ Neil Gaiman

the heart of the whispering flute - 2014.03.29

And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge,
And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge,
And all knowledge is vain save when there is work,
And all work is empty save when there is love

~ Khalil Gibran

freedom! - 2014.03.26

And 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
