the world and nature make available to us.
We recognize our complete dependence on its bounty.
And we acknowledge the need for good stewardship
to preserve its fruits for future generations.”

“Assuredly there is no more lovely worship of God
than that for which no image is required,
but which springs up in our breast spontaneously
when nature speaks to the soul,
and the soul speaks to nature face to face.”

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To marry Forgiveness

When you have found the courage
to marry
Love.”

“But of all the water’s secrets, he saw today
only a single one-one that struck his soul.
He saw that this water flowed and flowed,
it was constantly flowing, and yet it was always there;
it was always eternally the same and yet new at every moment!
Oh, to be able to grasp this, to understand this!”

~ Hermann Hesse

and spread it over the fields…
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.”
