“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”

“The Fingers of the Light
Tapped soft upon the Town
With “I am great and cannot wait
So therefore let me in.” – 
Emily Dickinson

 

 

To a garden full of posies
Cometh one to gather flowers;
And he wanders through its bowers
Toying with the wanton roses,
Who, uprising from their beds,
Hold on high their shameless heads
With their pretty lips a-pouting,
Never doubting – never doubting
That for Cytherean posies
He would gather aught but roses.

In a nest of weeds and nettles,
Lay a violet, half hidden;
Hoping that his glance unbidden
Yet might fall upon her petals.
Though she lived alone, apart,
Hope lay nestling at her heart,
But, alas! the cruel awaking
Set her little heart a-breaking,
For he gathered for his posies
Only roses – only roses!

Fool me once…

 

The well is dry, the well is dry!

And 

Try as I might

I cannot cry

And

Feel as I do

I have no clue

Why

Of all the people in the world

It had to be you

“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
― Terry Pratchett

“Even paradise could become a prison if one had enough time to take notice of the walls.”

“Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe and the rest of the world is missing out.”

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”

 – J.R.R. Tolkien
