[. . . My Obsession With Gratefulness. I Can't Stop. Just Now, I Press The Elevator Button And Am Thankful That It Arrives Quickly. I Get Onto The Elevator And Am Thankful That The Elevator Cable Didn't Snap And Plummet Me To The Basement. I Go To The Fifth Floor And Am Thankful That I Didn't Have To Stop On The Second Or Third Or Fourth Floor. I Get Out And Am Thankful That Julie Left The Door Unlocked So I Don't Have To Rummage For My King Kong Key Ring. I Walk In, And Am Thnkful That Jasper Is Home And Healthy And Stuffing His Face With Pineapple Wedges. And On And On. I'm Actually Muttering To Myself, 'Thank You. . .thank You. . . Thank You.' It's An Odd Way To Live. But Also Kind Of Great And Powerful. I've Never Before Been So Aware Of The Thousands Of Little Good Things, The Thousands Of Things That Go Right Every Day.]

Quotes About Sogni

"Un poeta somma in sé lAtlantico e il leone. Se luno vi sommerge, laltro vi addenta. Se sfuggiamo alle zanne, cadiamo in preda ai flutti. Un uomo che ha il potere di distruggere le illusioni è al tempo stesso belva e onda. Le illusioni stanno allanima come latmosfera alla terra. Toglietele quella tenera coltre daria, e vedrete la pianta morire, svanire i colori. La terra su cui noi camminiamo non è che brace estinta. E marga quella che calpestiamo, e ciottoli ingrati ci feriscono il piede. La verità è un fulmine che ci annienta. La vita è un sogno. E il risveglio che ci uccide. Colui che ci deruba dei nostri sogni ci deruba della nostra vita." - Author: Virginia Woolf
