You are as much a real person as you are deep. As with the depths of a diamond, the interior is twice as important as the surface. There are people who are all facade, like a house left unfinished when the funds run out. They have the entrance of a palace but the inner rooms of a cottage. – Balthasar Gracian (written in regards to personal depth).
We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. — Abraham Lincoln, 16th US President
I love this quote I found inside a chocolate bar wrapper! –
“Laugh uncontrollably, it clears the mind.”
I have not lost my mind – it’s backed up on disk somewhere.
