Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be, the last of life,
for which the first was made.
Our times are in his hand who saith,
A whole I planned, youth shows but half;
Trust God: See all, not be afraid!
– Robert Browning

“Does not Eternity appear dreadful to you…I often get thinking of it and it seems so dark to me that I almost wish there was no Eternity. To think that we must forever live and never cease to be. It seems as if Death which all so dread because it launches us upon an unknown world would be a relief to so endless a state of existense.” – Emily Dickinson

“I’m folding up my little dreams
   Within my heart tonight,
And praying I may soon forget
   The torture of their sight.
 
For time’s deft fingers scroll my brow
   With fell relentless art—
I’m folding up my little dreams
   Tonight, within my heart.”
– Georgia Douglas Johnson
“After all,
whats a life, anyway?
We’re born, we live a little while, we die.”
– E. B. White
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

I am learning everyday to allow the space between
where I am and where I want to be
to inspire me and not terrify me.

~ Tracee Ellis Ross
