26 June

indexSome people talk and talk
and never say a thing.
Some people look at you
and birds begin to sing.
Some people laugh and laugh
and yet you want to cry.
Some people touch your hand
and music fills the sky.

Charlotte Zolotow, born 26 June 1915, American author, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Sagittarius.

All men are stuck in a kind of fog. They’re surrounded by a wall of fog. They think this is perfectly normal, but it’s not. It means that since they can’t see much beyond their own little situation, they tend to vegetate. They need some immediate stimulus to keep them alert.
‘You’, the ego, live in your left brain. When we say that man is the only creature who spends 99 per cent of his time inside his own head, we mean, in fact, inside his left cerebral hemisphere. And in the basement of the left hemisphere is the library full of filing cabinets — the stuffy room that we mistake for reality.


Virginia Satir, born on 26 June 1916, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Taurus, († 1988).

Life is not what it’s supposed to be. It’s what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.


Pearl S. Buck, born 26 June 1892, Sun and Moon in Cancer, Ascendant in Aries.

The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this:
A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive.
To him… a touch is a blow,
a sound is a noise,
a misfortune is a tragedy,
a joy is an ecstasy,
a friend is a lover,
a lover is a god,
and failure is death.
Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create,
create, create,
so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning,
his very breath is cut off from him.
He must create, must pour out creation.
By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.
