Anne Morrow Lindbergh
To go out with the setting sun on an empty beach is to truly embrace your solitude.
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one's life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.
A friend of mine said something powerful at his grandfather's funeral.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
