New Light by Janet Elliott Brown

I am changed, just a little bit, each time I come across a thought or quote that sheds a new light on an old place in my mind. A place that I have visited more times than I can count, yet I wasn't able to see what I see so clearly now. The words can be simple and few, deeply dramatic or seemingly silly in their insights. There is no obvious reason that I receive a different message though each has been said in many different  ways by many different people.

The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed. — Ernest Hemingway

Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go. ― Oscar Wilde
