Quote of the Day
Best of all is it to preserve everything in a pure, still heart, and let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving, and for every breath a song.
Konrad von Gesner
I have so much chaos in my life, it's become normal. You become used to it. You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they're wrong.
The Vatican takes your breath away.
With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live. Most of the oxygen in the atmosphere is generated by the sea.
The sun, the earth, love, friends, our very breath are parts of the banquet.
Rebecca Harding Davis
To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets.

All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Mary Manin Morrissey
It's strange that words are so inadequate. Yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath, so the lover must struggle for words.
T. S. Eliot

Whether you're shuffling a deck of cards or holding your breath, magic is pretty simple: It comes down to training, practice, and experimentation, followed up by ridiculous pursuit and relentless perseverance.
I've never seen a moon in the sky that, if it didn't take my breath away, at least misplaced it for a moment.
Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of breath.
It is possible to experience an awakening in this life through realising just how precious each moment, each mental process, and each breath truly is.
A kestrel can and does hover in the dead calm of summer days, when there is not the faintest breath of wind. He will, and does, hover in the still, soft atmosphere of early autumn, when the gossamer falls in showers, coming straight down as if it were raining silk.
The clever cat eats cheese and breathes down rat holes with baited breath.
W. C. Fields
Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad.
Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me.
Working with the dying is like being a midwife for this great rite of passage of death. Just as a midwife helps a being take their first breath, you help a being take their last breath.
Like all parents, my husband and I just do the best we can, hold our breath and hope we've set aside enough money for our kid's therapy.
I now know that things I always thought I could depend on can crash in an instant. Because of the love that I have been shown, I now know what it means to be 'beloved.' I now know that no breath is to be taken for granted.
I just want people to take a step back, take a deep breath and actually look at something with a different perspective. But most people will never do that.
I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
