  1. Pingback: quotation: The second half of a man’s life is made up of nothing but the habits he has acquired during the first half. Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881) | euzicasa

  2. The others are “mirrors” to us… every now and then, we see our own flaws… and then blatantly we lie to ourselves, saying that we are just perfect…
    Maybe courage is lacking, when connected to our own karma, fate takes us through the intricate life’s paths. From the great classical literature, yes, we can extract valuable quotes like this of Dostoyevsky. Thanks Cindy, peaceful day :-) claudine

  3. Beautifully done, as always, dear Cindy. Most of these quotes are familiar to me, but they are given another life through your eyes. ~ Always love, Bobbie
