My music is best understood by children and animals. ~ Igor Stravinsky

 

The “Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test” involves viewing 36 photos of eyes, and judging which emotion or mental state each pair represents.

 

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

The tender friendships one gives up, on parting, leave their bite on the heart, but also a curious feeling of a treasure somewhere buried. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


“Those whom heaven helps we call the sons of heaven. They do not learn this by learning. They do not work it by working. They do not reason it by using reason. To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.” —Chuang Tse: XXIII

“We’re in the world, not against it. It doesn’t work to try to stand outside things and run them, that way. It just doesn’t work, it goes against life. There is a way but you have to follow it. The world is, no matter how we think it ought to be. You have to be with it. You have to let it be.” – Ursula K. Le Guin (from “The Lathe of Heaven”)

Never mistake kindness for weakness

Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer.

Without wearing any mask we are conscious of, we have a special face for each friend. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

“There was just such a man when I was young—an Austrian who invented a new way of life and convinced himself that he was the chap to make it work. He tried to impose his reformation by the sword, and plunged the civilized world into misery and chaos. But the thing which this fellow had overlooked, my friend, was that he had a predecessor in the reformation business, called Jesus Christ. Perhaps we may assume that Jesus knew as much as the Austrian did about saving people. But the odd thing is that Jesus did not turn the disciples into strom troopers, burn down the Temple at Jerusalem, and fix the blame on Pontius Pilate. On the contrary, he made it clear that the business of the philosopher was to make ideas available, and not to impose them on people.”
― T.H. White, The Once and Future King“Mermaid” sketch by Katie McCullough, colors by Douglys

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” ~ Sophia Loren

I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again. ~Oscar Wilde

First they ignore you then they laugh at you then they fight you then you win. – Gandhi

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt

“Whits fur ye’ll no gin by ye” ~Scottish; meaning, “What’s meant for you will not pass you by.”

I had a terrible education. I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers. ~WoodyAllen

If a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it. ~Edgar Watson Howe

Those who dream of feasting awake to lamentation – Chuang Tse II
