2. "For while we are enclosed in these confinements of the body, we perform as a kind of duty the heavy task of necessity; for the soul from heaven has been cast down from its dwelling on high and sunk, as it were, into the earth, a place just the opposite to godlike nature and eternity. But I believe that the immortal gods have sown souls in human bodies so there might exist beings to guard the world and after contemplating the order of heaven, might imitate it by their moderation and steadfastness in life."
Author: Cicero

4. "Thus strategists hesitate over the map, the few pins and lines of coloured chalk, contemplating a change in the pins and lines, a matter of inches, which outside the room, out of sight of the studious officers, may engulf the past, present and future in ruin or life. She was a symbol to herself then, lacking the life of both child and woman; victory and defeat were changes of pin and line; she knew nothing of war."

5. "What's given, in fact, always depends on the person or thing it's given to.

The truth isn't with him or with me, because it isn't with anyone, but happiness does belong to him."
Author: Fernando Pessoa

She was not at all sure that she had fully negotiated this simple fact until then."
Author: Julian Fellowes

Author: Tammara Webber
