There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.

It’s hard to tell the difference between sea and sky, between voyager and sea. Between reality and the workings of the heart.

Sweet dreams

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see, but it is impossible. Humans hide their secrets too well….

Time after time

To grow old means to be rid of anxieties about the past.

Stefan Zweig

The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away; than what it leaves behind.

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.
