“Do not grieve over temptations you suffer. When the Lord intends to bestow a particular virtue on us, He often permits us first to be tempted by the opposite vice. Therefore, look upon every temptation as an invitation to grown in a particular virtue and a promise by God that you will be successful, if only you stand fast.”
― St. Philip Neri
“Splendoarea trandafirului si puritatea crinului nu pot rapi parfumul micutei violete, nici farmecul simplu al margaretei. Daca orice gingasa floare si-ar dori sa fie un trandafir, primavara si-ar pierde frumusetea.”
Therese de Lisieux
“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
“As a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman, my country is the whole world.”
― Virginia Woolf
“Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.”
― Katharine Hepburn
“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
― Yves Saint Laurent
“Why does a woman work ten years to change a man, then complain he’s not the man she married?”
― Barbra Streisand
Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.
Still strong. This little plant stands green and strong against all adversities. So I hope that we, humans can do the same. My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost someone dear and cannot be close to say farewell. Also with whole families from villages who left behind their livestock because each member is hospitalized due to pandemic.
“I must be taken as I have been made. The success is not mine, the failure is not mine, but the two together make me.”
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
