Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Jean Paul Richter
Sorrows gather around great souls as storms do around mountains; but, like them, they break the storm and purify the air of the plain beneath them.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
The gaurdian angels of life sometimes fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us.
Only actions give life its strength, as only moderation gives it its charm
The things that you're liable to read in the Bible: it ain't necessarily so.
(September 26, 1898 - July 11, 1937)
It's funny what a picture can do.
If there is sin against life, it consists… in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
