Big Plans… Four for Friday

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably

themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work.

Daniel Burnham


 . . . be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions

themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a foreign tongue.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet 


 If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life

which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.

Henry David Thoreau



 The Ugly Duckling was so happy and in some way he was glad that he had experienced so much hardship and misery; for now he could fully appreciate his tremendous luck and the great beauty that greeted him.

. . . And he rustled his feathers, held his long neck high, and with deep emotion he said: “I never dreamt of so much happiness, when I was the Ugly Duckling!”

Hans Christian Anderson, The Ugly Duckling
