Sunday Dinner: Beginnings

December 25, 2015 Christmas 027


“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”


Arnold Bennett

“Letting there be room for not knowing

is the most important thing of all.

When there’s a big disappointment,

we don’t know if that’s the end of the story.

It may just be the beginning of a great adventure.

Life is like that. We don’t know anything.

We call something bad; we call it good.

But really we just don’t know.”

“Life however is teeming with vitality

and is likewise terribly tenacious;

holding on against impossible odds

in impossible situations

over impossible lengths of time.”

“The key to a better life

isn’t always a change of scenery.

Sometimes it simply requires

opening your eyes.”
