And so to bed...

And so to bed.... another collection of quotes and photos posted on FB at the end of the day.

And so to bed... quote for tonight is from C.S. Lewis:

For in Calormen, story-telling (whether the stories are true or made up) is a thing you're taught, just as English boys and girls are taught essay-writing. The difference is that people want to hear the stories, whereas I never heard of anyone who wanted to read the essays.

And so to bed... quote for tonight is from James Runcie:

Autumn was his favourite time of year, not simply for its changing colours but for the crispness in the air and the sharpness of the light. As the leaves fell the landscape revealed itself, like a painting being cleaned or a building being renewed. He could see the underlying shape of things. This was what he wanted, he decided: moments of clarity and silence.

And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Mike Bond:

He sat back on his heels and watched the stars one by one cut their way through onrushing darkness, till all was reversed, day was night, and the blackness glittered with all the desert's sands, each a tiny flame beyond the bounds of time.

And so to bed... quote for today is from Ursula le Guin:

The dragon said: "The sense has gone out of things. There is a hole in the world and the sea is running out of it. The light is running out. We will be left in the dry land. There will be no more speaking and no more dying." So at last I saw what he would say to me.

And so bed... quote for quote for tonight is from James Runcie (Granchester books):

Repentance is a form of sorrow, for one’s sins and the resolution to turn from them, to learn from them, recognizing one’s sin means being honest with ourselves, accepting who we are, embracing who we hope to be because that’s who God has intended us to be.

And so to bed... quote for tonight is from Suzy Kassem:

Laugh, I tell you
And you will turn back
The hands of time.
Smile, I tell you
And you will reflect
The face of the divine.
Sing, I tell you
And all the angels will sing with you!
Cry, I tell you
And the reflections found in your pool of tears -
Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday
To guide you through the fears of tomorrow.

And so to bed... quote for tonight is from C. JoyBell C:

Friendship is so important. The goal of a good friendship should be for life! To keep it for life! If you find a friendship, and it gives you a joy inside, a peace, and a freedom; keep that friendship for life. Through it all, you stay together... I always tell my son this, I always say, a friend is for life!
