Unwritten stories of mankind...

Unwritten stories of mankind...

“We're all made of stories. When they finally put us underground, the stories are what will go on. Not forever, perhaps, but for a time. It's a kind of immortality, I suppose, bounded by limits, it's true, but then so's everything” - Charles de Lint

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world” - Philip Pullman 

"The best part about being alone is that you really don't have to answer to anybody. You do what you want" - Justin Timberlake

" Loneliness expresses the pain of being alone and solitude expresses the glory of being alone "  - Paul Tillich

"Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone" - Steven Spielberg

"Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself " - Octavia E. Butler

"It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story” - Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

"If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera" - Lewis Hine

"We enter the world alone, we leave the world alone" - James Anthony Froude 

“Stories you read when you're the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you'll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit” - Neil Gaiman, M Is for Magic

"The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye"
Jimi Hendrix

"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair” - Khalil Gibran

Left Untold...

Left Untold...

Sometimes something's are best, when left untold...

"A man knows when he is growing old because he begins to look like his father"
Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Mitch Albom, For One More Day

“The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no? And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no? Doesn't that make life a story?”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

"Every man likes to be his own librarian"
Thomas Frognall Dibdin

"Great stories happen to those who can tell them"
Ira Glas

"Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form"

James Lafferty

Steven Moffat

A promise to keep you alive...

Smile is a promise. A promise to keep you alive

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day ~
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

The shortest distance between two people is a smile

“Never stop smiling not even when you're sad, someone might fall in love with your smile”?
 Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.
Never regret something that once made you smile.
You are somebody’s reason to smile.
Every smile makes you a day younger.  ~ Chinese Proverb 

If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it. ~ Andy Rooney

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. ~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. ~ Phyllis Diller

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever

“Remember even though the outside world might be raining, if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you.” ~ Anna Lee
