Building Fairy Palaces of beautiful thoughts !


Make yourselves nests of pleasant thoughts.
None of us yet know, 
for none of us have been taught in early youth,

what fairy palaces 
we may build of beautiful thoughts --
proof against all adversity.
Bright fancies,
satisfied memories,
noble histories, 
faithful sayings, 
treasure-houses of precious and restful thoughts, 

which care cannot disturb, 
nor pain make gloomy, 
nor poverty take away from us --

houses built without hands,
for our souls to live in.
John Ruskin  8-2014
