 Love! Immortality! it speedily became so hot in my breast, that I thought the geographers had misplaced the equator, and that it now ran directly through my heart. And from my heart poured out the feeling of love;—it poured forth with wild longing into the broad night. The flowers in the garden beneath my window breathed a stronger perfume. Perfumes are the feelings of flowers, and as the human heart feels most powerful emotions in the night, when it believes itself to be alone and unperceived, so also do the flowers, soft-minded, yet ashamed, appear to await for concealing darkness, that they may give themselves wholly up to their feelings, and breathe them out in sweet odours. Pour forth, ye perfumes of my heart, and seek beyond yon blue mountain for the loved one of my dreams! ~Heinrich Heine, "The Hartz Journey" (1824), Pictures of Travel, translated from German by Charles Godfrey Leland, 1855

Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, 1945

 You see, I'd never stopped to wonder why it was that millions of boys all over creation weren't seeing her and instantly falling in love with her, worshipping her body and mind and soul and spirit as I did.  It never occurred to me until this precise moment that maybe lots of boys wouldn't have thought she was gorgeous.  Maybe she only seemed so gorgeous to me because - and this is the shocker - her face came alive when I walked in front of it.  ~Author Unknown (I got this from Sassy magazine years ago but then lost the magazine - anyone know the attribution?)

 There's no denying that the only real unhappiness in life is losing a man....

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that we tend to put off living. We are all dreaming about some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside of our window today.

Keep your face to the sunshine, and you can not see a shadow.

Life Is Short But It Is Wide.
