“I Wish He’d Go Away; Only Love Can Drive Out Hate”


“As I was walking up the stair,

I met a man who wasn’t there.

He wasn’t there again today.

I wish, I wish he’d go away.”      (Hugh Mearns)



In the old days, words like sin and Satan had a moral certitude.  Today, they’re replaced with self-help jargon, words like dysfunction and antisocial behavior, discouraging any responsibility for one’s actions…”         (Don Henley)



“Too much sanity may be madness.   And maddest of all, to see life as it is and not as it should be.”           (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, ‘Don Quixote’)



“Every positive change — every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness — involves a rite of passage.  Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation.  I have never found an exception.”       (Dan Millman)



“You never know when someone
May catch a dream from you.
You never know when a little word
Or something you may do
May open up the windows
Of a mind that seeks the light …
The way you live may not matter at all,
But you never know, it might.”      
(Author Unknown)



“We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.”       (George Bernard Shaw)



“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”        (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
