Monday's special

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
 Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

“Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
 Chinese Proverbs

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.”
 Marianne Williamson

“Night's darkness is the bag that bursts with the gold of the dawn.”
 Rabindranath Tagore

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”
 Carl Gustav Jung



Some thought-provoking comments as usual. Good job, Claudia :-)

I like the candle one

Loved these quotes Claudia about the light. My particular favourites are no. 1 and no. 2. So true.

@Linda - quotes do inspire me! Glad you enjoy them
@Adam - a true one!
@Karen - me good, 5 more days and then holiday:) and you?
@Diane - happy :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
