like a good bonfire, 
leaving no trace of yourself."

every heartache carries with it 
the seed of an equal or greater benefit."

"Live a balanced life--
learn some and think some 
and draw and paint and sing 
and dance and play 
and work every day some."

"Joy is the sweet voice, joy the luminous cloud--We in ourselves rejoice! And thence flow all the charms or ear or sight
All melodies the echoes of that voice, All colors a suffusion from the light."

Happy birthday, Kayla

 and if you cannot put your heart in it, 
take yourself out of it.
