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
“Every moment and every event of man’s life on earth plants something in his soul.” – Thomas Merton
“The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was the miracle.” – Anais Nin
“Too the as-yet-unborn, to all innocent wisps of undifferentiated nothingness : watch out for life.” – Kurt Vonnegut
– Dr. Seuss
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.
