“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.” ~ Horace (65-8); Roman lyric poet


VitaSoul – Rainer Maria Rilke

“Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky. ” – Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926); Excerpt from Letters to a Young Poet

VitaSoul – Robert Gould

“A constructive, useful life, good works, and good relationships are as valid as writing poetry or inventing a machine. Anything that one does well and obtains satisfaction from is a good enough reason for living. To be a decent human being that people like and feel better for knowing is enough.” – Robert Gould; Poet
