Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.

~ Edwin Markham ~
They say the world is round and yet,
Sometimes I think it's square.
So many little hurts you get,
From corners here and there.
We flatter those we scarcely know
And please the fleeting guest.
Yet we deal many a thoughtless blow,
To those we love the best.
~ Roger Heffington~
some people came to the master
How can you be happy
in a world of such impermanence,
where you cannot protect your loved ones
from harm, illness or death?
The master held up a glass and said: Someone gave me this glass;
It holds my water admirably and it glistens in the sunlight.
I touch it and it rings!
One day the wind may blow it off the shelf, or my elbow may knock it from the table.
I know this glass is already broken,
so I enjoy it -- incredibly.
~Achaan Chah Subato~
To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face;
To greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains;
To approach my work with a clean mind;
To hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the ultimate purpose toward which I am working;
To meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart;
To be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done -
This is how I desire to waste wisely my days.
~ Thomas Dekker ~
Truth and Love
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it...always.
~ Mahatma Gandhi ~
If there is anything that we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.
~ Carl Jung ~
If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.
~ Rabbi Harold Kushner ~
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
~ Anais Nin ~
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength
While loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Love is a promise, love is a souvenir,
once given never forgotten,
never let it disappear.
~ John Lennon ~
The opposite of love is not hate,
The opposite of art is not ugliness,
The opposite of faith is not heresy,
And the opposite of life is not death,
~ Elie Wiesel ~
When the night has been too lonely,
and the road has been too long,
and you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
in the winter,
far beneath the bitter snow,
lies the seed that with the sun's love
in the spring becomes the rose.
~ From 'The Rose' ~
I will greet this day with love in my heart.
And how will I do this?
Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again.
I will love the sun for it warms my bones;
yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.
I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.
I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul.
I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
~ Og Mandino ~
Sing Your Song
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer,
it sings because it has a song.
~ Maya Angelou ~
Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible.
One must learn to love oneself with a wholesome and healthy love, so that one can bear to be with oneself and need not roam."
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
Just the Way You Are
I said I love you and that's forever,
And this I promise from the heart.
I could not love you any better,
I love you just the way you are.
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
~ Jane Howard ~
"The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love
~ Theodore Hesburgh ~
“I can't control my destiny, I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be.
There's only here...
Give in to love...
Or live in fear...
No other path...
No other way...
No day but today...
No day but today.
~ Jonathan Larson ~
To love a person is to learn the song
That is in their heart,
And to sing it to them
When they have forgotten.
