All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson (via modernhepburn)
A silent look of affection and regard when all other eyes are turned coldly away – the consciousness that we possess the sympathy and affection of one being when all others have deserted us – is a hold, a stay, a comfort, in the deepest affliction, which no wealth could purchase, or power bestow.
— Charles Dickens (via modernhepburn)
There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
— Nelson Mandela (via modernhepburn)
