Quote For The Day 11-27-2015

“I watched the early morning light pass over and through the windows of colored glass, leaving streaks of red and green and yellow on the stone floor. When I was little, I used to try and capture the colored light. I thought I could hold it in my hand and carry it home. Now I know it is like happiness– it is there or it is not, you cannot hold it or keep it.”
Karen Cushman, Catherine, Called Birdy

Quote For The Day 10-6-2015

“When we are children, we have a tranquil acceptance of mystery which is driven out of us later on, by curiosity and education and experience. But it is possible to find one’s way back…Children are not different animals. They are us, not yet wearing our heavy jacket of time.”
