He never hearkened to the dictates of his heart, but busied himself in obeying the voices of his environment. H e amused himself with shimmering objects that blinded his eyes and heart to life's secrets; his soul was diverted away from an understanding of the law of nature, and to a temporary self-gratification.

Some suggestions for you :

If the other person injures you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure him you will always remember.

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone... but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

There is a desire deep within the soul which drives man from the seen to the unseen, to philosophy and to the divine.

There must be something strangely sacred in salt. It is in our tears and in the sea.

Was the love of Judas' mother of her son less than the love of Mary for Jesus?

The breath of life is in the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind.

Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.

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

Oftentimes have I heard you speak of one who commits a wrong as though he were not one of you, but a stranger unto you and an intruder upon your world. But I say that even as the holy and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each one of you, So the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.

The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.

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

You often say, ‘I would give, but only to the deserving.' The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture. They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.

Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.

Who can depart from his pain, and his aloneness without regret??
