E E Cummings

What wonderful quotes from this man.  I’d never heard of him until yesterday.  I’ve now googled him and here are some of his quotes/aphorisms which “do it for me!”:

“To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.”

“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star…”

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”

“Unless you love someone, nothing else makes any sense.”

“Your homecoming will be my homecoming”
