When the poet makes his perfect selection of a word, he is endowing the word with life.
John Drinkwater

Words are but pictures of our thoughts.

Happy the man, and happy he alone, he who can call today his own; he who, secure within, can say, tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today.
John Dryden

I love words, I like the first two a lot, and hope to be able to live as the third conveys, though I am not sure I want to challenge tomorrow that strongly

When I read the first two quotes, I was right away thinking of you, Lilo.
Three good quotes, but I rather not live through the third one, if possible.

"Words are but pictures of our thoughts.
John Dryden "
I wish I knew enough words to write a picture of my thoughts, but I don't.
But I do enjoy a well written poem.
