The quotes:

     - Anais Nin, 1903 - 1977

     - Jean Kerr

The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core strength within you that survives all hurt.
     - Max Lerner, 1902 - 1992

High station in life is earned by the gallantry with which appalling experiences are survived with grace.
     - Tennessee Williams, Memoirs

Love is the delightful interval between meeting a beautiful girl and discovering that she looks like a haddock.
     - John Barrymore
