Wednesday Vignette: Magnolia stellata

“Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained.

It is the product of Faith, Strength, Energy, Will,

Sympathy, Justice, Imagination,

and the triumph of principle.

It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism.”


Dorothy Thompson



“I say to you all, once again –

– in the light of Lord Voldemort’s return,

we are only as strong as we are united,

as weak as we are divided.

Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord

and enmity is very great.

We can fight it only by showing

an equally strong bond of friendship and trust.

Differences of habit and language

are nothing at all if our aims are identical

and our hearts are open.”


J.K. Rowling



“Your brothers are the foolish ones

for not seeing the strength in beautiful things.”


Kristin Cashore

“Where I was born and where and how I have lived

is unimportant. It is what I have done

with where I have been

that should be of interest.”


Georgia O’Keeffe
