Happiness, hope, & freedom

There are as many nights as days,
and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness,
and the word "happy" would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
Carl Jung

To know what you prefer
instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer,
is to have kept your soul alive.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann von Goethe

We must accept finite disappointment,
but we must never lose infinite hope.
Martin Luther King Jr.

The secret of happiness is freedom.
The secret of freedom is courage.


  1. Beautiful quotes and beautiful photos. Did you take these? Gorgeous.

  2. Thanks so much, Bonnie. Yes, all the photos on my blogs are mine (unless otherwise stated, but I think at this point they're all mine). Thanks for visiting!
