Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night. #williamblake

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

Herman Fisher

Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’ was inspired by Elvis Presley’s manor of the same name.

He strove long to learn what can be learned, in silence, from the eyes of animals, the flight of birds, the great slow gestures of trees

I used to measure the heavens, now I measure the shadows of Earth

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror

Our final decisions are made in a state of mind that will not last - Proust

Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth,
And ever changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?

It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.
