#SoftTuesday . . . . But when the fairy sang…..

“It may be laid down as a general rule that if a man begins to sing, no one will take any notice of his song except his fellow human beings. This is true even if his song is surpassingly beautiful. Perhaps a cat or a dog may look at him; his horse, if it is an exceptionally intelligent beast, may pause in cropping the grass, but that is the extent of it.
But when the fairy sang, the whole world listened to him… In the fairy’s song the earth recognized the names by which it called itself.”

Susanna Clarke, “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.”

. . . . . often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not;
and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”

From the moment we are born….

“From the moment we are born, people tell us that the world is like this and like that,
this way, that way. It is natural that for a certain period of time, we end up believing
what we are told. But we must soon push these ideas aside and discover our own
way of living reality.”

-Paulo Coelho

The world we want for ourselves and our children…

” The world we want for ourselves and our children will not emerge
from electronic speed but rather from a spiritual stillness that takes root
in our souls. Then, and only then, will we create a world that reflects
the heart instead of shattering it.”

~ Marianne Williamson
