The coffee and the cakes… muaaah!

Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity. ~ Tiziano Terzani (A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East)

Guess the place 🙂

Hope

Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope,
Even in the sunset of your life.
~ Sri Chinmoy (My Life’s Soul-Journey: Daily Meditations for Ever-Increasing Spiritual Fulfillment)

I’d come to see that home wasn’t just about the place where you lived or the memories within the walls. It was the love you saw reflected in the eyes of the people around you, and the strength of your own feelings that made a place home.~ R.E. Butler (A Flash of Fang)
