Quotes About Delicate Flowers

"Look at the four-spaced yearThat imitates four seasons of our lives;First Spring, that delicate season, bright with flowers,Quickening, yet shy, and like a milk-fed child,Its way unsteady while the countrymanDelights in promise of another year.Green meadows wake to bloom, frail shoots and grasses,And then Spring turns to Summers hardiness,The boy to manhood. Theres no time of yearOf greater richness, warmth, and love of living,New strength untried. And after Summer, Autumn,First flushes gone, the temperate season hereMidway between quick youth and growing age,And grey hair glinting when the head turns toward us, Then senile Winter, bald or with white hair,Terror in palsy as he walks alone." - Author: Ovid

Quotes About World Getting Smaller

"I think this is when most people give up on their stories. They come out of college wanting to change the world, wanting to get married, wanting to have kids and change the way people buy office supplies. But they get into the middle and discover it was harder than they thought. They cant see the distant shore anymore, and they wonder if their paddling is moving them forward. None of the trees behind them are getting smaller and none of the trees ahead are getting bigger. They take it out on their spouses, and they go looking for an easier story." - Author: Donald Miller

Quotes About Love This Valentines

"alentines Day is coming up and many persons will feel bothered by the fact that theyre still single. At one point I was also there and I know how it feels, but my advice to you is no to allow the spirit of this season to spoil your inner peace. Valentines is not so much about love and relationships as it is about money and creating a false sense of worth for those unable to fully indulge themselves.A relationship is no measure of a persons worth, as a matter of fact many professional and driven persons of sound character and strength are single for the very reason that relationships are very difficult to focus on while pursuing goals. In whatever circumstance you are, while you do have life, be thankful because you are free to be as happy as you make your mind up to be." - Author: Calvert Jones
