Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.
Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone. - Thomas Carlyle
Every day that is born into the world comes like a burst of music and rings the whole day through, and you make of it a dance, a dirge, or a life march, as you will. - Thomas Carlyle
Beautiful day today at Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better. -Thomas Carlyle
Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms. -Ikkyu Sojun
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. -Rumi
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
The safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. -C.S. Lewis
I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.
The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.
Children are all foreigners.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Adults are obsolete children.
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
