"I speak of new cities and new people. I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes. I tell you yesterday is a wind gone down, a sun dropped in the west. I tell you there is nothing in the world only an ocean of to-morrows, a sky of to-morrows. I am a brother of the cornhuskers who say at sundown: To-morrow is a day." Carl Sandburg, Prairie (1918)
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
Sam Levenson, scriitor şi jurnalist american, a scris acest poem pentru nepotul său. Lui Audrey Hepburn îi plăcea să îl citească celor doi fii, Sean şi Luca.
În plus, câteva citate din Sam Levenson care m-au făcut să zâmbesc:
If you want to know how your girl will treat you after marriage, just listen to her talking to her little brother.
You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.
Just try to be happy. Unhappiness starts with wanting to be happier.
It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and say the opposite.
I'm going to stop putting things off, starting tomorrow!
