“Wisdom and Love; Between the Two My Life Flows”


“I divide by fears by multiplying the risks;

Adding bridges by subtracting walls.”   (Unknown Author)



“Those who are able to see beyond their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses.”   (Plato)



“Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do.  But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.”   (Anonymous)



“The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am.  Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.”   (Dennis Waitley)



“Oftentimes we call Life bitter names, but only when we ourselves are bitter and dark.  And we deem her empty and unprofitable, but only when the soul goes wandering in desolate places and the heart is drunken with over-mindfulness of self.

Life is deep and high and distant; and though only your vast vision can reach even her feet, yet she is near; and though only the breath of your breath reaches her heart, the shadow of your shadow crosses her face, and the echo of your faintest cry becomes a spring and an autumn in her breast.

And Life is veiled and hidden, even as your greater self is hidden and veiled.  Yet when Life speaks, all the winds become words; and when she speaks again, the smiles upon your lips and the tears in your eyes turn also into words.  When she sings, the deaf hear and are held; and when she comes walking, the sightless behold her and are amazed and follow her in wonder and astonishment.”  (Kahlil Gibran)



“Wisdom tells me I am nothing.

Love tells me I am everything.

Between the two my life flows.”    (Nisargadatta Maharaj)
