And he who has deserved to drink from the ocean of life deserves to fill his cup from your little stream.

All you have shall some day be given; therefore give now that the season of giving is yours and not your inheritors.

Love passes by us, robed in meekness; but we flee from her in fear, or hide in the darkness; or else pursue her, to do evil in her name.

Long were you a dream in your mother's sleep, and then she woke to give you birth.

He who seeks ecstasy in love should not complain of suffering.

Rest in reason; move in passion.

To follow Beauty even when she shall lead you to the verge of the precipice. and though she is winged and you are wingless, and though she shall pass beyond the verge, follow her, for where Beauty is not, there is nothing.

And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields. And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.
