"When we think of those we love we melt into affectionate teddy bears stuffed with tender emotions." Lynn Kathleen Russell in her book: The Wonder of You: What the Near-Death Experience Tells You about Yourself
This is one of the most liked Eleanor Roosevelt quotes: The Future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
When the winds of change come pessimists build walls, optimists raise sails.
This is one of my favorite quotations.
“Something I know about the human heart, is that no matter how hardened and protected it has become, when it finally cracks open, there is something beautiful and sacred inside.” Ryan Eliason
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” Pablo Picasso
I can't think of anyone who does that better than the artist in this photo, Madeleine Wood, Painter of Natural Delights. She paints amazing life-like flowers with vivid, bold colors. Her paintings come more and more to life with every brush stoke she makes. I was lucky to peak trough her patio door one night. (Don't worry, I was not stalking her. I did it with her permission.)
