How does that proverb go again? "Liken yourself to a dragonfly skimming the surface of the water…touching on subjects without going into it deeply"

"We fear death, we shudder at life's instability, we grieve to see the flowers wilt again and again, and the leaves fall, and in our hearts we know that we, too, are transitory and will soon disappear. When artists create pictures and thinkers search for laws and formulate thoughts, it is in order to salvage something from the great dance of death, to make something last longer than we do." ~ Hermann Hesse

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more." —Lord Byron, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage"  #clpicks #lovefl #ormondbeach

"“Go outside…
amidst the simple beauty of nature…
and know that as long as places like this exist, 
there will be comfort for every sorrow, 
Whatever the circumstances may be.” ~ Anne Frank

Nature's first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf's a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay. ~ Robert Frost
