Quote of the Day


I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.

- Rabindranath Tagore

Quote of the Day


"I understood that although the facts remained immovable, the past was done. My future did not need to be forever a reaction to it. A new and different life was waiting to be lived. All I had to do was make a choice. All I had to do was choose it well."

- David Charles Manners (from In the Shadow of Crows)

Quote of the Day


"Of course, there must be lots of Magic in the world," he said wisely one day, "but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen."

- Frances Hodgson Burnett (from The Secret Garden)

Quote of the Day


"The truth is we determine our own futures...ours is a limitless universe of infinite possibilities. From these we make our choices of how to think, feel, react, to be, every minute of every day. These are choices that ultimately determine the experiences we call our life...It means we have great power over the passage and experience of that life...for if we change our choices, we change our 'destiny...' This is why we must make our choices with awareness, with responsibility...We need to ask ourselves whether our daily choices lead us towards greater freedom, joy and truth, or towards greater contraction, pain and self-delusion."

- David Charles Manners (from In the Shadow of Crows)
