A room without a book is like a body without a soul.
-Marcus Tullius Cicero

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.
-- Ecclesiastes 9:11

  •  Did you get what you wanted from this life, after all?
    I did.
    And what did you want?
    To call myself Beloved,
    To feel myself Beloved,
    On Earth.

    Raymond Carver
  •  It has been said, `time heals all wounds.´
    I do not agree. The wounds remain.
    In time, the mind (protecting its sanity),
    covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens.
    But, it is never gone.

    Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy 
  • Start by doing what's necessary,
    then do what's possible,
    and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

    Saint Francis of Assisi
  • I don't think of all the misery,
    but of all the beauty that still remains.

    Anne Frank
  • It is in this solitude that we discover
    that being is more important than having,
    and that we are worth more
    than the result of our efforts.

    Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude
  • True wisdom lies in gathering the precious things
    out of each day as it goes by.

    E.S. Bouton
  • The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep.
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    Robert Frost
  • To live happily is an inward power of the soul.  
    Marcus Aurelius
  • If I keep a green bough in my heart,
    the singing bird will come.

    Chinese proverb
  • Be happy while you're living,
    for you're a long time dead.

    Scottish proverb
  • Grief can take care of itself,
    but to get the full value of a joy
    you must have somebody to divide it with.
    Mark Twain
  • There are many changes that take place
    when one loses a spouse.
    One of those changes is that
    you now have a new title.
    For a woman, the word 'wife'
    is replaced with 'widow.'
    It is a title that is given without choice.
