I come across these quotes:
Brenda Ueland: Think of yourself as an incandescent power, illumined perhaps, and forever talked to by God and his messengers.
Rabindranath Tagore: Children with the freshness of their senses come directly to the intimacy of this world. This is the first great gift they have.
Rainer Maria Rilke: Almost all of our sadnesses are moments of paralysis of feeling when we can no longer hear our surprised feelings living.
e.e . cummings: It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.
