My first glimpse of you was not in truth the first. The hour in which our hearts met confirmed in me the belief in Eternity and in the immortality of the Soul.

Some suggestions for you :

My friend, I am not what I seem. Seeming is but a garment I wear - a care-woven garment that protects me from thy questionings and thee from my negligence.

And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue.

God made Truth with many doors to welcome every believer who knocks on them.

You make such a noise falling! You scatter all my winter dreams.

The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.

Most people who ask for advice from others have already resolved to act as it pleases them.

Your clothes conceal much of your beauty, yet they hide not the unbeautiful. And though you seek in garments the freedom of privacy you may find in them a harness and a chain. Would that you could meet the sun and the wind with more of your skin and less of your raiment. For the breath of life is in the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind.

What are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow?

Man merely discovers he never can and never will invent.

Art arises when the secret vision of the artist and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes.

Each and every one of us, dear Mary, must have a resting place somewhere. The resting place of my soul is a beautiful grove where my knowledge of you lives.

Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy. Only when you're empty you're at standstill and balance.

It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through understanding; and to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving.
