|The more sand that has escaped the hourglass of life, the clearer we should see through it.|
|Be not ashamed woman, you are the gates of the body, and you are the gates of the soul.|
|The eye is the only sense we have which crosses between the finite and the infinite.|
|The Eyes are the
windows of the soul
|To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily, not to dare is to lose onself|
|When you follow your bliss, doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors|
