We all write poems; it is simply poets are the ones who write in words.
The newspapers are full of what we would like to happen to us and what we hope will never happen to us.

Evolution did not intend trees to grow singly. Far more than ourselves they are social creatures, and no more natural as isolated specimens than man is as a marooned sailor or hermit.
But I think the most harmful change brought about by Victorian science in our attitude to nature lies in the demand that our relation with it must be purposive, industrious, always seeking greater knowledge.
Only fools think our attitude to our fellow men is a thing distinct from our attitude to 'lesser' life on this planet.
We all write poems; it is simply that the poets are the ones who write in words.
Because a star explodes and a thousand worlds like ours die, we know this world is. That is the smile: that what might not be, is.

The most important questions in life can never be answered by anyone except oneself.
There comes a time in each life like a point of fulcrum. At that time you must accept yourself. It is not any more what you will become. It is what you are and always will be.
