A Poet to the Last

“We need much less than we think we need.”

“When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.”

“If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.”

“Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.”  (last tweet)

"The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them"

― Maya Angelou 
 'Umbrella' by Marie Bashkirtseff 1883
