  3. Love has no age, no limit; and no death.

  6. Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.
  7. Beginnings are always messy.
  8. One's eyes are what one is, one's mouth is what one becomes.
  9. We are not living in a private world of our own. Everything we say and do and think has its effect on everything around us.
