Quotes of the Morning: Changing of the Year

“The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.”
-‘Uncle’ Aleister Crowley

“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.”
-Charles Dickens

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”
-George Santayana

“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“The question, ‘Which is the happiest season of life?’ was asked of an aged man. And he replied: ‘When spring comes, and in the soft air the buds are breaking on the trees, and they are covered with blossoms, I think, 'How beautiful is spring'; and when summer comes and covers the trees with its heavy foliage, and singing birds are among the branches, I think, 'How beautiful is summer.' When autumn loads them with golden fruit, and their leaves bear the gorgeous tint of frost, I think, 'How beautiful is autumn.' And when it is severe winter, and there is neither foliage nor fruit, then I look up through the leafless branches as I never could until now, and see the stars shine in God's home.’"
-Unknown

“Happy New Year’s everyone! I hope you enjoy 2006, because you haven’t got a lot of other options.”
-Skippy
