    "Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life." — Jean De La Fontaine

    "Most of us who turn to any subject we love remember some morning or evening hour when we got on a high stool to reach down an untried volume, or sat with parted lips listening to a new talker, or for very lack of books began to listen to the voices within, as the first traceable beginning of our love." — T.S. Eliot

    "Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character." — Heraclitus Ephesus

    "Our envy always lasts longer than the happiness of those we envy." — Heraclitus Ephesus

    "Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." — Groucho Marx

    "The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change, for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up" — Charles Morgan

    "There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved: It is God's finger on man's shoulder." — Charles Morgan
