There is no limit to the concern one must feel…..


There is no limit to the concern one must feel for the suffering of human beings,
that indifference to evil is worse than evil itself,
that in a free society, some are guilty, but all are responsible.
~ Abraham Joshua Heschel

When I grow up…..


“When I grow up I want to be a little boy.”
– Joseph Heller


The innocence of children is their wisdom, the simplicity of children is their egolessness. The freshness of the child is the freshness of your consciousness, which never becomes old, 
which always remains young.
– Osho

A boy is Truth with dirt on its face,


Boys are found everywhere – on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on,
swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls
hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and
Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut
on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future
with a frog in its pocket.

– Alan Beck

#FridayFantasy . . . . And his Soul said to him,


“Before him lay his shadow, which was the body of his soul, and behind him hung the moon
in the honey-coloured air.

“And his Soul said to him, ‘If indeed thou must drive me away, send me not forth without a
heart. The world is cruel, so give me thy heart to take with me.’ “

From Oscar Wilde, “The Fisherman and his Soul.”

#SoftTuesday . . . . Their hearts have not grown old.


Unwearied still, lover by lover,
They paddle in the cold
Companionable streams or climb the air;
Their hearts have not grown old.

~ W.B.Yeats

. . . . and Martin Luther King spoke


‘Now I say to you in conclusion,
life is hard,
at times as hard as crucible steel.
It has its bleak and difficult moments.
Like the ever-flowing waters of the river,
life has its moments of drought and its moments of flood.
Like the ever-changing cycle of the seasons,
life has the soothing warmth of its summers
and the piercing chill of its winters.
But if one will hold on,
he will discover that God walks with him,
and that God is able to lift you from the fatigue of despair
to the buoyancy of hope
and transform dark and desolate valleys
into sunlit paths of inner peace.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

If you want to know…..

If you want to know where to find your contribution to the world,
then look at your wounds. 
When you learn how to heal them, teach others.
