A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things. — Grace Hopper

We keep looking so hard in life for the ‘specific message’, and yet we are blinded to the fact that the message is all around us, and within us all the time. We just have to stop demanding that it be on OUR terms or conditions, and instead open ourselves to the possibility that what we seek may be in front of us all the time. — John Imhof, ‘The Art of Possibility’

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

'Bed in Summer' by Robert Louis Stevenson
