  10. Such a lovely collection! I was so touched when a Japanese friend taught me that proverb not that long ago - she was using it to talk about me! I was going through a rough patch at the time, but kept fighting.

  12. Did that come out right... you know what I mean - that they can be so powerful in spite of their simplicity. It's late. Forgive my poor wording.

  18. great quote selections! one of my fave quotes is just like the Helen Keller: "On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur; l'essential est invisible pour les yeuxs." Which means, "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; the essential is invisible to the eyes." It's from The Little Prince. :)

    I hadn't heard the one about wishing you were someone else - that is great! :)
