Not all those who wander are lost.

Excerpt:

The Hobbit, Chapter 1, pg. 26

‘Well I should say that you ought to go East and have a look around. After all there is a side-door, and dragons must sleep sometimes, I suppose. If you sit on the door-step long enough, I daresay you will think of something.’

Romance is thinking about your significant other, when you are supposed to be thinking about something else.

Loving once and only once is possible – anything is possible.

Excerpt:

The Notebook

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..

Personal Quote:

Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

Excerpt:

The Raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door —
Only this, and nothing more.”

Personal Quote:

Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.
Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.

Excerpt:

Winnie-the-Pooh

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.

Houses 10, 3, 8 / Air, Fire / Fixed

Personal Quote:

The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.

Excerpt:

The Call of the Wild

He was mastered by the sheer surging of life, the tidal wave of being, the perfect joy of each separate muscle, joint, and sinew in that it was everything that was not death, that it was aglow and rampant, expressing itself in movement, flying exultantly under the stars.

Personal Quote:

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Excerpt:

Great Expectations

Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. I was better after I had cried, than before–more sorry, more aware of my own ingratitude, more gentle.

Dominants: Sagittarius, Aquarius, Capricorn
Moon, Jupiter, Pluto
Houses 1, 2, 3 / Fire, Air / Mutable

Personal Quote:

It’s too late to correct it: when you’ve once said a thing, that fixes it, and you must take the consequences.

What does it matter where my body happens to be?  My mind goes on working all the same.  In fact, the more head downwards I am, the more I keep inventing new things.

If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.

Excerpt:

Alice in Wonderland

‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ said Alice. ‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the cat. ‘We’re all mad here.’

Personal Quote:

There is no such uncertainty as a sure thing.
O would some power the giftie gie us to see ourselves as others see us. (O would some power the gift to give us to see ourselves as others see us.)
Dare to be honest and fear no labor.

Excerpt:

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Personal Quote:

I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.
Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.
We may brave human laws, but we cannot resist natural ones.

Excerpt:

Journey to the Center of the Earth

While there is life there is hope. I beg to assert…that as long as a man’s heart beats, as long as a man’s flesh quivers, I do not allow that a being gifted with thought and will can allow himself to despair.

Dominants: Aquarius, Aries, Pisces

Fire, Air / Mutable

Personal Quote:

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

Excerpt:

Cat in the Hat

And this mess is so big
And so deep and so tall,
We cannot pick it up.
There is no way at all!

Moon: 11°29′ Scorpio MC: 21°50′ Aries
Dominants: Aquarius, Pisces, Leo
Jupiter, Saturn, Sun
Houses 7, 8, 6 / Air, Water / Fixed

Personal Quote:

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.
Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
No man really knows about other human beings. The best he can do is to suppose that they are like himself.

Excerpt:

The Pearl, Prologue, pg. I

And, as with all retold tales that are in people’s hearts, there are only good and bad things and bblack and white things and good and evil things and no in-between. If this story is a parable, perhaps everyone takes his own meaning from it and reads his own life into it.

Pluto, Venus, Sun
Houses 4, 10, 2 / Water, Fire / Mutable

Personal Quote:

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.
Life’s greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.

Excerpt:

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

Love is like a tree: it grows by itself, roots itself deeply in our being and continues to flourish over a heart in ruin. The inexplicable fact is that the blinder it is, the more tenacious it is. It is never stronger than when it is completely unreasonable.

HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN

Born: April 2, 1805
In: Odense (Denmark)
Sun: 11°50′ Aries AS: 18°01′ Sagittarius
Moon: 9°18′ Taurus MC: 26°43′ Libra
Dominants: Sagittarius, Libra, Aries
Jupiter, Uranus, Venus
Houses 3, 9, 12 / Fire, Air / Cardinal

Personal Quote:

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.

Enjoy life. There’s plenty of time to be dead.

Every man’s life is a fairy tale, written by God’s fingers.

Excerpt:

The Snow Queen

I can give her no greater power than she has already, said the woman; don’t you see how strong that is? How men and animals are obliged to serve her, and how well she has got through the world, barefooted as she is. She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart. If she cannot herself obtain access to the Snow Queen, and remove the glass fragments from little Kay, we can do nothing to help her.

Personal Quote:

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.
The best way out is always through.
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.

Excerpt:

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Moon: 12°14′ Aquarius MC: 14°13′ Scorpio

Jupiter, Uranus, Saturn
Houses 1, 3, 2 / Earth, Water / Fixed

Personal Quote:

There is a time for departure even when there’s no certain place to go.
In memory everything seems to happen to music.
When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone.

Excerpt:

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

I’ve got the guts to die. What I want to know is, have you got the guts to live?
