Some suggestions for you :

We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered.

I am the infinite sea, and all worlds are but grains of sand upon my shore.

They say the nightingale pierces his bosom with a thorn when he sings his love song. So do we all. How else should we sing?

The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.

A voice cannot carry the tongue and the lips that gave it wings.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

Love... it surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be.

I AM IGNORANT of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.

And what is fear of need but need itself?

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

Because the soul is like a flower that folds its petals when dark comes, and breathes not its fragrance into the phantoms of the night.

One may not reach the dawn by the path of the night.

The envious praises me unknowingly.
