“If you see a dandelion as a weed, you’ll spray it. If you see it as a flower, you’ll draw it close, turn it this way and that, and become lost in the colossal burst of slender golden petals that spew sunshine into the darkest of souls. And so, how many things have we sprayed that could have illuminated our souls if we would have let them be more than what we let them be?” ― Craig D. Lounsbrough

I am a minimalist. I like saying the most with the least. ― Bob Newhart

Veronica Waterperry

If talk is cheap, then being silent is expensive. And many people it seems, can’t afford to buy into it. ― Anthony Liccione

Iris

She liked the life she had. She loved habits. She craved a day with nothing in it, a long, quiet stretch of hours in the studio.― Ann Brashares, Sisterhood Everlasting

Iris

“You’re very perceptive for a guy who can go a whole day without talking,” she said, peering up at him. “That’s why I’m perceptive.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Longest Ride

Iris

I have both the violent turbulence of the storm and the quiet promises of God in the storm. And what I must work to remember is that something is not necessarily stronger simply because it’s louder. ― Craig D. Lounsbrough

Iris

I am a believer in silence. The value of silence. The power of silence. The space that isn’t an absence but a presence. A pause that is bigger than the noise that surrounds it. A gap that is a mirror. A gulf that is a bridge. The emptiness that is rejuvenating. The space that is full of more than it could ever contain. ― Helen Rickerby, How to Live

Marguerite Daisy

Stay safe. Stay healthy.
