What gain is there if you win the whole world and lose your very self?
What can you offer in exchange for your one life?
~ Matthew 16:25-26 ~
One cannot live the afternoon of life
according to the program of life’s morning;
for what was great in the morning
will be of little importance in the evening,
and what in the morning was true
will at evening have become a lie.
~ Carl Jung ~
There is a goodness, a Wisdom that arises,
sometimes gracefully, sometimes gently,
sometimes awkwardly, sometimes fiercely,
but it will arise to save us if we let it,
and it arises from within us…
~ China Galland ~
There is nothing in your life too terrible or too sad
that will not be your friend
when you find the right name to call it…
~ Laurens van der Post ~
As one’s trust in the hidden goodness of life becomes stronger,
it will be possible to bless more and more of life’s ambiguities.
~ Demetrius Dumm ~
Take care and be earnestly on your guard
not to forget the things which your eyes have seen,
nor let them slip from your memory
as long as you live…teach them
to your children and to your children’s children.
~ Deuteronomy 4:9 ~
Something is waiting for us to make ground for it.
Something that lingers near us,
something that loves,
something that waits for the right ground to be made
so it can make its full presence known.
~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes ~
…there is a place deep inside where one’s real life goes on,
much like an underground river in parched, dry country,
which flows whether one knows about it or not.
~ Sharon Butala ~
But all shall be well, and all shall be well,
and all manner of thing shall be well.
~ Julian of Norwich ~
The conclusion is always the same:
love is the most powerful
and still the most unknown energy
of the world.
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin ~
