“To be poor and be without trees, is to be the most starved human being in the world. To be poor and have trees, is to be completely rich in ways that money can never buy.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés, The Faithful Gardener: A Wise Tale About That Which Can Never Die 🌳⛅ #garden #tree #sky #quote (at Englischer Garten)

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (Jonathan Safran Foer)

"Anyway, the fascinating thing was that I read in National Geographic that there are more people alive now than have died in all of human history. In other words, if everyone wanted to play Hamlet at once, they couldn’t, because there aren’t enough skulls!"

Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) Rest in Peace.

[This quote - which is actually a Jack Kerouac quote - was used by the Apple corp. in their “Think Different” campaign in 1997. I am not attributing the quote to Steve Jobs. Rather, I posted the quote, because Jobs lived out the quote with his innovative ideas. You can watch the ad here … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjgtLSHhTPg]

"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet."
