History is as light as individual human life,
light as a feather, as dust swirling into the air,
as whatever will no longer exist tomorrow.
― Milan Kundera
All difficult things have their origin
in that which is easy,
and great things
in that which is small.
− Lao Tzu
The final test of a gentleman
is his respect for those
who can be of no possible service to him.
— William Lyon Phelps
Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes I just sits.
To sit with a dog on a hillside
on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring
– it was peace.
— Milan Kundera
is the only universal liar
who never loses his reputation for veracity.
— Robert Green Ingersoll
Restless hearts, it has been along time,
Out here on the journey, for a glimpse of paradise,
It’s getting hard to find a place to go,
Where peaceful water flow.
— Chris de Burgh
