Running! If there’s any activity happier, more exhilarating, more nourishing to the imagination, I can’t think of what it might be. In running the mind flees with the body, the mysterious efflorescence of language seems to pulse in the brain, in rhythm with our feet and the swinging of our arms.
~ Joyce Carol Oates
One of the hardest lessons we have to learn in this life, and one that many persons never learn, is to see the divine, the celestial, the pure in the common, the near at hand — to see that heaven lies about us here in this world.

~ Fran Sorin
Perhaps he does not want to be friends with you until he knows what you are like. With owls, it is never easy-come-easy-go.
~ T. H. White, The Sword in the Stone
A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.
~ Bernard Meltzer
