Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.
Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.
I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.
Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while.

I’ve never seen a moon in the sky that, if it didn’t take my breath away, at least misplaced it for a moment.
Tell me what you feel in your room when the full moon is shining in upon you and your lamp is dying out, and I will tell you how old you are, and I shall know if you are happy.
Henri Frederic Amiel
You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it’s like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos.
The moon puts on an elegant show, different every time in shape, colour and nuance.

It was a particularly good evening to begin a book.
Tove Jansson, The Summer Book
The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that don’t, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper.
Polly Horvath, My One Hundred Adventures
“Come with me,’ Mom says.
To the library.
Books and summertime
Lisa Schroeder, I Heart You, You Haunt Me
The reader became the book; and summer night
Was like the conscious being of the book.
Inc.com had an article at the beginning of 2015 that lists 57 ways to make 2015 fabulous. I know we are all fabulous but there are times we get too busy or too tired and we forget how wonderful and extraordinary we are! Here’s a few things to help remind us of what we can do to make 2015 (and beyond) fabulous.
- Maintain your integrity. You’ll never be happy at work if you let other people push you into places that violate your personal integrity.
- Make weekends a haven. While it’s sometimes necessary to do some work when you’re technically not at work, you need time to recharge your batteries.
- Meditate more often. Numerous scientific studies reveal that prayer and meditation changes your physiological state for the better.
- Never over-commit yourself. Be enthusiastic and go the “extra mile,” but avoid making promises that you can’t reasonably keep.
- Read more that’s inspiring. Fill your quiet moments with music, books, and TED talks that are uplifting and help you aspire to be your best.

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
John Lubbock, The Use Of Life
Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. for those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. you can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. summer just opens the door and lets you out.
Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
Some of the best memories are made in flip flops.
