Winters

Oscar Wilde, Ireland

Wisdom comes with winters.

At the age of 103, the artist Beatrice Wood wrote to a friend:

Beatrice Wood, USA

“I hang on to the statement of scientists that there is no time. Therefore, join me in telling everyone you are thirty-two ... choosing to live in the timeless, I am now at the easiest and happiest time of my life.”
When asked the secret of her longevity, she would simply offer “art books, chocolates and young men”.

Call for a party

Marlo Morgan, USA

During our journey there were two occasions that we celebrated by honoring someone’s talent. Everyone is recognized by a special party, but it has nothing to do with age or birthdate - it is in recognition of uniqueness and contribution to life. They believe that the purpose for the passage of time is to allow a person to become better, wiser, to express more and more his or her beingness. So if you are a better person this year, and only you know that for sure, then you call for a party. When you say you are ready, everyone honors that.

We have time

Jimi Hendrix, USA

We have time, there's no big rush.

The Quickening Pace

Peter Russell, England

The pace of life is speeding up. Hardly the most startling statement. As most of us are only too aware, change comes more and more rapidly. Technological breakthroughs spread through society in years rather than centuries. Calculations that would have taken decades are now made in minutes. Communication that once required months occurs in seconds. Development in every area is happening faster and faster.

The Stories We Tell

Jeremy Adam Smith, USA

The future is just a collection of stories we tell each other. The more and better stories we tell - and the more people we tell them to - the more we strengthen the future.

Said the Queen ...

Lewis Carroll, England

"A slow sort of country!” said the Queen. “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”
