Some suggestions for you :

And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge, And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge. And all knowledge is vain save when there is work, And all work is empty save when there is love; And when you work with love you bind your self to yourself, and to one another, and to God.

Jesus was not sent here to teach the people to build magnificent churches and temples amidst the cold wretched huts and dismal hovels. He came to make the human heart a temple, and the soul an altar, and the mind a priest.

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary.

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.

Your children are not your children They are sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.

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

And then I shall come to you, a boundless drop to a boundless ocean.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Men, even if they are born free, will remain slaves of strict laws enacted by their forefathers...

It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.

Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
