The path isn’t a straight line; its a spiral.





“The path isn’t a straight line; its a spiral.
You continually come back to things you thought
you understood and see deeper truths.”

#FridayFantasy . . . . She always had that about her,






“She always had that about her, that look of otherness,
of eyes that see things much too far,
and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world.”

~Joanne Harris, The Girl with No Shadow

Wisdom Quotes #2…….the ageless spirit!

“Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be.
But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is…and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be…and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body.
He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart…no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn’t matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them.”
Robert A. Heinlein

Wisdom Quotes #1

“Wisdom is not communicable. The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish… Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”
HERMANN HESSE, Siddhartha

One day, a rich dad took his son on a trip. Wanted to show him how poor someone can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On the way home, dad asked, “Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?”

Son said, “We have one dog, they have four, we have pool, they have rivers, we have lanterns at night, they have stars, we buy foods, they grow theirs, we have walls to protect us, they have no walls but lot of friends , we have encyclopedias, they have Bible.”

Then he added, “Thanks dad for showing me all this. Now I have realized how poor we are.”

A Laurel for HONESTY!
