Life's bittersweet route

"Our individuality is all, all, that we have. 
There are those who barter it for security, those who repress it for 
what they believe is the betterment of the whole society, 

but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star 
is the one who nurtures it and rides it in, 
in grace and love and wit, 
from peculiar station to peculiar station 
along life's bittersweet route."
~ Tom Robbins

"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; 
and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, 
which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only 
what lies in its own focus."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
