If taking one-self seriously as a woman means committing to a life of grooming, pumicing, pruning and polishing one's exterior for the benefit of onlookers, then I may as well leave my unwieldy rucksack to the top of a bleak Scottish hill and make my home there under a stone, where I'll fashion shoes out of mud and clothes out of leaves.

I've learned that getting what you want gives you a pretty high batting average, and leaves you plenty to struggle for.
In Mexico, when we want to speak deep secrets, we drink pulgue together. It is a drink made from the cactus plant, and when you take the bottle from your mouth, it leaves a string behind, between the mouth and the bottle, like a spider's web. It shows that the truth sticks inside.
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
Every stress leaves an indelible scar, and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older.

We can speak without voice to the trees and the clouds and the waves of the sea. Without words they respond through the rustling of leaves and the moving of clouds and the murmuring of the sea.
Travelers repose and dream among my leaves.
I don't care what town you're born in, what city, what country. If you're a child, you are curious about your environment. You're overturning rocks.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Love takes up where knowledge leaves off.
Just as people can watch spellbound a circus artist tumbling through the air in a phosphorized costume, so they can listen to a preacher who uses the Word of God to draw attention to himself. But a sensational preacher stimulates the senses and leaves the spirit untouched. Instead of being the way to God, his 'being different' gets in the way.
