I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.
— L.M. Montgomery (via julie911)
Sometimes I need
only to stand
wherever I am
to be blessed.
— Mary Oliver (Evidence: Poems)
To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent, that is to triumph over old age.
~ Thomas B. Aldrich
