Your children are not your children. They are sons and daughters of the Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts.

Some suggestions for you :

Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant and not said, most of love is lost.

For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unclaimed.

Many a woman borrows a man's heart; Very few could possess it.

You who travel with the wind, what weather vane shall direct your course?

Let there be spaces in your togetherness.

Know, therefore, that from the greater silence I shall return..... Forget not that I shall come back to you....A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and anohter woman shall bear me.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, so shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Mayhap a funeral among men is a wedding feast among the angels.

Now I know that here is something higher than heaven and deeper than ocean and stranger than life and death and time. I know now what I did not know before.

If you sing of beauty though alone in the heart of the desert you will have an audience.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

The real test of good manners is to be able to put up with bad manners pleasantly.

Tell your secret to the wind, but don't blame it for telling the trees.

Say not, I have found the path of the soul. Say rather, I have met the soul walking upon my path.
