Elizabeth Searle Lamb
“You live in your mind, just as I live in my mind. We are like tortoises carrying our homes on our backs, for there is no way to get out. But we do have a choice of furnishings. We have a choice as to whether these minds we live in will be prisons or palaces. It is strictly up to us.”
Elizabeth Searle Lamb, U.S. haiku poet
