Things other people have said

...that have stuck with me;

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed." -- Albert Einstein


"The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new." -- Socrates


"From Alexander the Platonist: rarely, and never without essential cause, to say or write to anyone that 'I am too busy'; nor to use a similar excuse, advancing 'pressure of circumstances', in constant avoidance of the properties inherent in our relations to our fellows and our contemporaries." -- Marcus Aurelius


Something in me reasonates when I read this next one. I found it on a tombstone by St. Johns Church in RVA;

"Numbered with the saints in Glory everlasting." -- Margaret Wright 1901
