Quotes for safe keeping

This one came off Ali's blog and is attributed to Mary Jean Iron:

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.

And this one that's been kicking around on my desk for over a week from Pablo Casals:

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that wil never be again.
