[The Dial Of The Clock Wears Out Unevenly; Most Worn Is The Area Round Eight. As It Is Stared At With Abrasive Glancesunfailingly Twice A Day, It Is Weathered Away. On The Other Side The Area At Two Is Only Half As Worn, For Closed Eyes At NightPass Without Stopping. If There Is One Who Possesses A Flat Watch Evenly Worn, It Is He Who, Failing At The Start, Is Running One Lap Behind. Thus The World Is Always A Lap Fast--The World He Thinks He Sees Has Not Yet Begun. Illusory Time, When The Hands Stand Vertically On The Dial; Without The Bell Announcing The Raising Of The Curtain, The Play Has Come To An End.]

Quotes About Never Being So Happy

"It is too often the quality of happiness that you feel at every moment its fragility, while depression seems when you are in it to be a state that will never pass. Even if you accept that moods change, that whatever you feel today will be different tomorrow, you cannot relax into happiness like you can into sadness. For me, sadness has always been and still is a more powerful feeling; and if that is not a universal experience, perhaps it is the base from which depression grows. I hated being depressed, but it was also in depression that I learned my own acreage, the full extent of my soul. When I am happy, I feel slightly distracted by happiness, as though it fails to use some part of my mind and brain that wants the exercise. Depression is something to do. My grasp tightens and becomes acute in moments of loss: I can see the beauty of glass objects fully at the moment when they slip from my hand toward the floor" - Author: Andrew Solomon

To live with your ‘thorn uncomplainingly — that is, sweet, patient, and free in heart to love and help others, even though every day you feel weak — is true sanctification. It is true healing for the spirit. It is a supreme victory of grace." - Author: J.I. Packer

Quotes About Lulu

"Her şey içime dokunurdu. Bir yabancının peşinden giden bir köpek. İçimi burkardı. Yanlış ayı gösteren bir takvim. Sırf bunun için ağlayabilirdim. Ağlamıştım da. Bacadan tüten dumanın bitişinde. Devrik bir şişenin masanın kenarında takılıp kalışında.Hayatımı daha az duygulanmayı öğrenmeye harcadım.Her gün daha az duygulandım.Büyümek midir bu? Yoksa daha beter bir şey mi?Kendini mutluluktan korumadan mutsuzluktan koruyamazsın." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
