these quotes litter my desk

"In our language rhyme is a barrel. A barrel of dynamite. The line is a fuse. The line smoulders to the end and explodes; and the town is blown sky-high in a stanza." - Vladimir Mayakovsky

"There's a better way to do it - find it." - Thomas Edison

"Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars." - Henry Van Dyke

"As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received." - Paul

"My God, what is a heart
that thou shouldst it so eye, and woo,
Pouring upon it all they art,
As if thou hadst nothing else to do?"
- George Herbert

"Praise to the Lord who doth prosper they work and defend thee
Surely His goodness and mercy HERE daily attend thee
Ponder aNew what the Almighty can do
If with His love he befriend thee."
- Joachim Neander

and they inspire me when i remember to read them.
