“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
The soul does not give itself up to despair until it has exhausted all illusions.
Les Misérables, Victor Hugo   —

It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
Gabriel García Márquez (RIP April 17, 2014) —
