"The weight of the world
Under the burden
Under the burden
The weight we carry
Who can deny?
Looks out of the heart
Burning with purity--
For the burden of life
"'There is no use trying,' said Alice, 'One can't believe impossible things.'
'I dare say you haven't had much practice,' said the queen, 'When I was your age, I always did it for a half hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'"
~Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
"I would like to have my picture taken so that I can give it to the boy that sits next to me."
Isn't that the sweetest thing ever?
"I love thee, I love but thee
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold
And the stars grow old."
"True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy."
"Flawed is her vision, her awkwardness. Her face has blemished, she hardly brushes her hair. She is not conventionally pretty, although to me she is beautiful."
"Without a heart I can never really know what it would be like to love someone, or ever really understand trashy novels."
~Wizard of Oz
"Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous; and it pricks like thorn."
"I have learned not to worry about love;
But to honor its coming with all my heart."
Why is it that I am posting so many engagement photos here recently?
I better stop before my heart starts throbbing more...
