“No thief, however skillful, can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.”  – L. Frank Baum, The Lost Princess of Oz

“In my errant life I roamed
To learn the secrets of women and men,
Of gods and dreams.
I’ve known all the countries of our world,
I’ve lived a thousand lives:
Many lives I lived in love,
Other lives I squandered.
For in my life I never traveled,
All I did was wander.” – Roman Payne, The Wanderess

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

“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

“At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”

Bryan Adam Castillo

“Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at the stars because we are human?”
Neil Gaiman, Stardust

 

“O, the wine of a woman

from heaven is sent, 

more perfect than all

that a man can invent.

 

While our bodies were nude bathed in candlelight fine

I devoured her mouth, tender lips divine;

and I drank through her thighs her feminine wine.

 

O, the wine of a woman 

from heaven is sent,

more perfect than all 

that a man can invent.”  Roman Payne
