I said to the almond tree, ''Friend, speak to me of God,'' and the almond tree blossomed.
~ Nikos Kazantzakis (December 02, 1885 - October 26, 1957)
It isn't given for us to know those rare moments when people are wide open and the lightest touch can wither or heal. A moment too late and we can never reach them any more in this world. They will not be cured by our most efficacious drugs or slain with our sharpest swords.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 - December 21, 1940)
