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

Some suggestions for you :

Though his ways are hard and steep.

Not without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city.

To be overmindful of your debt is to doubt his generosity who has the free-hearted earth for mother, and God for father...

All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit the very wood that was hollowed with knives?

The lights of stars that were extinguished ages ago still reaches us. So it is with great men who died centuries ago, but still reach us with the radiations of their personalities.

Learn the words of wisdom uttered by the wise and apply them in your own life. Live them - but do not a make a show of reciting them, for he who repeats what he does not understand is no better than an ass loaded with books.

To belittle, you have to be little.

Let there be spaces in your togetherness.

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

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.

For to be overmindful of your debt is to doubt his generosity who has the free-hearted earth for mother, and God for father.

If you sing of beauty though alone in the heart of the desert you will have an audience.
