Better pass boldly into that other world
In the full glory of some passion,
Than fade and wither dismally with age.

The first time I read an excellent book,
It is to me just as if I had gained a new friend.
When I read a book over I have perused before,
It resembles the meeting with an old one.

We’re nothing if we’re not loved.
When you meet somebody who is more important to you than yourself,
That has to be the most important thing in life, really.
More Maeve Binchy quotes here
If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.

All I ask is the chance to prove
That money can’t make me happy.

We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
