Your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes

“You will find it less easy to unroot faults than to choke them by gaining virtues. Do not think of your faults, still less of others faults; in every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong; honour that; rejoice in it and as you can, try to imitate it; and your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes.”
― John Ruskin

Living on a Hint

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.

— Henry David Thoreau

Throw your dreams into space like a kite

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” Anais Nin
