6. "Lifting and Leaning There are two kinds of people on earth today, Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.Not the good and the bad, for 'tis well understood The good are half bad and the bad are half good.Not the happy and sad, for the swift-flying years Brings each man his laughter and each man his tears.Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man's wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health.Not the humble and proud, for in life's busy span He who puts on vain airs is not counted a man.No! The two kinds of people on earth I mean Are the people who lift and the people who lean.Wherever you go you will find the world's masses Are ever divided in just two classes.And, strangely enough, you will find, too, I ween, There is only one lifter to twenty who lean.In which class are you? Are you easing the load Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?Or are you a leaner who lets others bear Your portion of worry and labor and care?"
Author: Ella Wheeler Wilcox
7. "All you need to catch a fairy is an old birdhouse and some shiny stuff. You know, like glass and glitter, or pieces of colored plastic or metal things that'll sparkle when the sun hits them.You can paint the birdhouse, but it doesn't really matter what color. It's not like how hummingbirds like red things, fairies aren't that picky.So you take your birdhouse and shiny stuff and just hang it somewhere. High but not too high. Trees are good but fairies are everywhere so trees aren't like, a requirement.You don't even need to put anything over the birdhouse entrance. Once they get in they won't be able to figure out how to get out.Fairies are kind of stupid."
Author: Erin Morgenstern

And you must laugh and chatter as you used to do - telling me about the battle off the Saints or the picnic at Marie Galante - that famous picnic that turned into a fight. Or the pirates and what they did between voyages. For every voage might be their last. Sun and sangoree's a heady mixture. Then - the earthquake. Oh yes, people say that god was angry at the things they did, woke from his sleep, one breath and they were gone."
Author: Jean Rhys

He has no master except his own soul and that I am sure is why he does it."
