Selected from Laura Moncur's Motivational Quotations - January 17, 2013

Charles Caleb Colton (1780 - 1832)

Stephen Nachmanovitch  
The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)  
Things don't fall apart. Things hold. Lines connect in thin ways that last and last and lives become generations made out of pictures and words just kept.
Lucille Clifton
