In the haunted house of life, art is the only stair that doesn't creak. - Tom Robbins
All rising to great places is by a winding stair. - Gautama Buddha
I falter where I firmly trod, And falling with my weight of cares Upon the great world's altar-stairs. That slope thro' darkness up to God, I stretch lame hands of faith, and grope, And gather dust and chaff, and call To what I feel is Lord of all, And faintly trust the larger hope. - Alfred Lord Tennyson
