“Had to walk the rocks to see the mountain view.”
Lyric from Lead of Love by Caedmon’s Call
If you can live this moment
If you can be here this moment
Then everything Takes care of itself
“The nicest place to be is in someone’s thoughts.
The safest place to be is in someone’s prayers.
The best place to be is in God’s Hands.”
Out of the dead and cold decay of winter, a crocus blooms bringing joy.
There is always hope which we must look for.
Gather the crumbs of happiness
and they will make you a loaf of bread.
“You are master of the moments of your life”
With compassion in our heart,
every thought, word, and deed
can bring about a miracle
Thich Nhat Hanh
‘Going home’ is a journey to the heart of who we are,
a place where we can be ourselves
and welcome the reality of our beauty and our pain.
From this acceptance of ourselves, we can accept others as they are
and we can see our common humanity.
In the end, only three things matter-
how much you loved, how gently you lived,
and how gracefully let go of things not meant for you.
Courage doesn’t always come with a roar.
Sometimes courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day that says,
“I will try again tomorrow.”
‘Hope is the music of the future;
Faith the ability to dance to it today’
In the depths of winter, I finally learned that
within me there lay an invincible summer.
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing:
the last of human freedoms –
to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one’s own way.”
Viktor E. Frankl
Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering,
There is a crack in everything- That’s how the light gets in.”
“What do we live for if it is not
to make life less difficult for each other.”
“Kindness is more important than wisdom,
and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.”
Theodore Isaac Rubin
“Defenceless under the stars, our world in stupor lies,
and everywhere ironic points of light flash out
wherever the just exchange their messages.
May I, like them, composed of eros and of dust,
beleaguered by the same negation and despair,
show an affirming flame.”
“The devil whispered in my ear, you are not strong enough for the storm.’
Today I whispered in the devils ear, ‘I am the storm'”
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm that could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
