“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.”

A Selection from the Poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning (B. Tauchnitz, 1872), p. 227, "Sonnets from the Portuguese"
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.”
