5 favourite quotes of the week

1. There is a loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn up, holding, holding on, this motion, unlike a ship’s, smooths and contains the rocker. It’s an inside kind — wrapped tight like skin. Then there is the loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down. It is alive. On its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one’s own feet going seem to come from a far-off place. -TONI MORRISON, Beloved

2. He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. -EMILY BRONTE, Wuthering Heights

3. There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights. -BRAM STROKER, Dracula

4. If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea. -ANTOINE DD SAINT, The Little Prince

5. We judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their behaviour. -STEPHEN COVEY, The Speed of Trust
