Sometimes we know who we want to be and what we want to do long… long before we know how to get there.

― Patti Callahan Henry, Between The Tides

The world is no place for rest. I repeat, it is no place of rest but for effort. Steady, continuous undeviating effort. Our work should never be done and it is the daydream of ignorance to look forward to that as a happy time, when we shall wish for nothing more, and have nothing more to accomplish

Dr Thomas Dent Mutter 

When you know you love someone, when you know it’s finally the right time, you don’t just wait around for the right words, you just say the sentences even if they’re all mixed up and imperfect.

― Patti Callahan Henry, Coming Up for Air
