Lines I Very Much Like

When the act of reflection takes place in the mind, when we look at ourselves in the light of thought, we discover that our life is embosomed in beauty.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
- Vincent Van Gogh

She dances with her whole heart and soul: her figure is all harmony, elegance, and grace, as if she were conscious of nothing else, and had no other thought or feeling; and, doubtless, for the moment, every other sensation is extinct.
- Goethe 

My goal in any type of flattery is to first give an unconditional gift to someone that really doesn't come from me.  Recognizing the beauty of you, is a gift to me. The flattery is attached when you recognize it.  As you should.  I am merely a vessel for self image that is rarely seen by the people themselves and if it is seen it is often tossed to the side by their feelings of self doubt and guilt.  I want to reassure you...not assign a characteristic to you.  You have already done that by the way you present yourself.  I am merely sending your signals back to you.

For what are Stars but Asterisks 

To point a human life?

- Emily Dickinson
