What is love? Gratitude. What is hidden in our chests? Laughter. What else? Compassion.
Rumi, quoted in www.gratefulness.org
A country man takes news philosophically, whereas a city man is likely to hear it with panic.
The space created by silence and stillness helps us find our equilibrium, our center of gravity.
A writer needs to pine for solitude, court it, steal it away from the rest of the so-called real life.
Holy Mother Earth, the trees and all nature, are witnesses to your thoughts and deeds.
A Winnegago saying
The one great enemy of the human race is fear. The less fear you have, the more health and harmony you will have.
