Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own. ~William Hazlitt
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot
To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold intimate converse with men of unseen generations - such is a pleasure beyond compare. ~Kenko Yoshida
In books lies the soul of the whole Past Time: the articulate audible voice of the Past, when the body and material substance of it has altogether vanished like a dream. ~Thomas Carlyle
Medicine for the soul. ~Inscription over the door of the Library at Thebes
"I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious" ~ Andrew Wyeth

“All of life is a journey. Which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.”
“The Road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can, pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say.” J.R.R. Tolkien.
"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending...” - Maria Robinson
If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov
Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. ~Sharon O'Brien
Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass. ~Anton Chekhov
A writer is someone who can make a riddle out of an answer. ~Karl Kraus
I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions. ~James Michener
Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper. ~Isaac Bashevis Singer
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day."
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
There are some amazingly talented people on DA and these are my particular favourites! I tend to fave a lot of redheads, forests, mazes, topiary, sundials, gardens, toadstools, cats, cute wild animals, ballet themed shots, landscapes, blue and purple flowers, sculptures and artistic nudes, but there are a lot of other themes to be found in my favourite's folder!
