Where is home? Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart's tears can dry at their own pace.

- Lucille Ball
Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.
- Honore De Balzac
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie
We all are born mad. Some remain so.
- Samuel Beckett
The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.

Each morning the day lies like a fresh shirt on our bed; this incomparably fine, incomparably tightly woven tissue of pure prediction fits us perfectly. The happiness of the next twenty-four hours depends on our ability, on waking, to pick it up.
- Walter Benjamin
You stand outside the circle and wonder why you feel left out, unaware that you need your own permission to join the others - not theirs.
- Rusty Berkus
Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
- Elizabeth Bibesco
There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude... a quiet joy.
- Ralph H. Blum
We are co-creators with God, not puppets on a string waiting for something to happen.
- Father Leo Booth
I avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep going forward.
- Charlotte Bronte
