quote 2020-02-24 12:54
Expectations kill your happiness and your peace of mind,
So, if you wish to be happy in life,
Don’t expect a thing from people you love,
Because expectations kill, plunging into your heart like a knife.

Books Feed and Cure and Chortle and Collide

In all this willful world
of thud and thump and thunder
man's relevance to books
continues to declare.

Books are meat and medicine
and flame and flight and flower,
steel, stitch, and cloud and clout,
and drumbeats on the air.

― Gwendolyn Brooks

quote 2014-02-16 00:50
But yestereve the winter trees
Reared leafless, blackly bare,
Their twigs and branches poignant-marked
Upon the sunset-flare.

White-petaled, opens now the dawn,
And in its pallid glow,
Revealed, each leaf-lorn, barren tree
Stands white with flowers of snow.

Public domain poem: "The Snow-Blossoms" (1912) by Clark Ashton Smith

quote 2012-08-24 13:53
Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.

by Arnold Lobel

Something from a positive book-land!

Maybe just without that 'beard', OK? ;)
