Anticipation and Angst

A boat is safe in the harbor. But this is not the purpose of a boat.
Paulo Coelho

There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

Stones would play inside her head,
And where she slept, they made her bed.
And she would ache for love and get
But stones.
Neil Diamond, Stones

I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Woody Allen

Angel, Sarah McLachlan


Another Brick In The Wall, Pink Floyd

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

A very moving image. The quotes, as always are well matched. I particularly agree with Plato and also with CS Lewis who hit the nail on the head for me.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
