The newest computer can merely compound,
at speed,
the oldest problem
in the relations between human beings,
and in the end
the communicator will be confronted
with the old problem,
of what to say
and how to say it.

- Edward R. Murrow

Sacred Tears

There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief ...
and unspeakable love.

- Washington Irving

There are no extra pieces in the universe.
Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill,
and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.

We are spiritual beings on a human journey.

Every Day - A New Day

Today a new sun rises for me;

everything lives, everything is animated,

everything seems to speak to me of my passion,

everything invites me to cherish it.

Sacred Idleness

Work is not always required.
There is such a thing as sacred idleness
the cultivation of which is now fearfully neglected.

Exquisite Moments

Summer weather - like being in love,

is a philosopher’s stone

which turns our ordinary days to gold.

But not the whole day…

For it is never the whole day,

never all our life

which is transformed in any happiness,

but only the exquisite moments.

--Nan Fairbrother


Guard well within yourself that treasure - kindness.

Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret,

how to acquire without meanness.

- George Sand

Dreams and Aspirations

Do not part with your dreams or aspirations

for when they are gone

you will still exist,

but you have ceased to live.

- Henry David Thoreau
