“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”
“The closer you get to real matter, rock air fire and wood, boy, the more spiritual the world is.”
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.”
“Who looks in the sun will see no light else; but also he will see no shadow. Our life revolves unceasingly, but the centre is ever the same, and the wise will regard only the seasons of the soul.”
Henry David Thoreau
Capricorns are comfortable with their negative feelings, which keep them stuck and unable to grow. Capricorn is the process. Through the struggle to achieve, you learn to use despair and hopelessness as tools, instead of emotional crutches. Nothing is wasted in God’s world Not even your negativity. Responsibility, hard work, and discipline are the only remedies. Capricorn is the disowned shadow that must be passed through before you can walk the path of self-mastery and perfection, giving birth to your spiritual self.
- Albert Schweitzer (b. January 14)
“I want in fact more of you. In my mind I am dressing you with light; I am wrapping you up in blankets of complete acceptance and then I give myself to you. I long for you; I who usually long without longing, as though I am unconscious and absorbed in neutrality and apathy, really, utterly long for every bit of you.”
Franz Kafka, Letters To Milena
“Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.”
