Home is where the heart is,
a camera is an artist's heart -
every shutter-click is a heart beat.

"For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, 
on any path that may have heart, 
and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length--
and there I travel looking, 
looking breathlessly." 
~ Carlos Castaneda

"We must never stop dreaming. 
Dreams provide nourishment for the soul, 
just as a meal does for the body. 
Many times in our lives 
we see our dreams shattered 
and our desires frustrated, 
but we have to continue dreaming. 
If we don't, our soul dies, 
and agape cannot reach it." 
~ Paulo Coelho,

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence: 
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference. "
~ Robert Frost

"Out of the night that covers me, 
Black as the pit from pole to pole, 
I thank whatever gods may be 
For my unconquerable soul. 

In the fell clutch of circumstance 
I have not winced nor cried aloud. 
Under the bludgeonings of chance 
My head is bloody, but unbowed. 

Beyond this place of wrath and tears 
Looms but the Horror of the shade, 
And yet the menace of the years 
Finds and shall find me unafraid. 

It matters not how strait the gate, 
How charged with punishments the scroll, 
I am the master of my fate, 
I am the captain of my soul."

~ by William Ernest Henley
