Bennett““Well, now, If little by little you stop loving me, I shall stop loving you, Little by little, If suddenly you forget me, Do not look for me, For I shall already have forgotten you, If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life, And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots, Remember, That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms, And my roots will set off to seek another land” – Pablo Neruda“He is free to evade reality, he is free to unfocus his mind and stumble blindly down any road he pleases, but not free to avoid the abyss he refuses to see.” – Ayn Rand“There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can’t move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.” – Robert Frost“The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.” – George Washington Burnap“Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance.

Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” – Gloria Steinem“Equality is not a concept. It’s not something we should be striving for. It’s a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition.

Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies).

As water takes whatever shape it is in, So free may you be about who you become. As silence smiles on the other side of what’s said, May your sense of irony bring perspective. As time remains free of all that it frames, May your mind stay clear of all it names. May your prayer of listening deepen enough, to hear in the depths the laughter of god.” – John O’Donohue“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S.

Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing.

We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.” – C. JoyBell C.“Everyone you meet is a part of your journey, but not all of them are meant to stay in your life.

There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don’t you?” – Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable.

The soul is here for its own joy. A head has one use: For loving a true love. Feet: To chase after. Love is for vanishing into the sky. The mind, for learning what men have done and tried to do. Mysteries are not to be solved: The eye goes blind, when it only wants to see why. A lover is always accused of something.

“Anger is like flowing water; there’s nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget.

Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human.” – C. JoyBell C.“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts.

We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.” – Robert T. Kiyosaki“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” – Joseph Campbell“We are the music-makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act.
