    "So many feel lethargic , unmotivated , or worn out in this hemisphere.
    We are really not made to rocket straight through Winter ,
    ablaze with energy .
    Look at nature .
    The ground , the plants , the animals are deep at rest .
    This is the natural way of things .
    Spend some time with the long nights , the moon , solitude ,
    the bare earth , stillness .
    Be easier on yourself ..
    ~ Victoria Erickson ~

    “I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
    -Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    ''Strange, isn't it? To love a book. When the words on the pages become so precious that they feel like part of your own history because they are.'' ~ The Starless Sea (book I'm currently reading)

    “Cold has its own taste. It tastes of a bitten tongue. It coils around you, a living thing, a beast that means to kill you, not with wrath, not with tooth nor claw, but with the mercy of surrender, with the kindness of letting you go gentle into the long night after such a burden of pain and misery.”
    ― Mark Lawrence, Prince of Fools

    "Pharmaceutical companies are reaping vast profits without adequate independent scrutiny of their scientific claims.(33) The purpose of regulators is not to dance to the tune of rich global corporations and enrich them further; it is to protect the health of their populations. We need complete data transparency for all studies, we need it in the public interest, and we need it now."
    - P. Doshi
