#TenderTuesday . . . . His heart was like a sensitive plant





“His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine,
but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger,
or the lightest breath of wind.”


Quote from “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall,” by Anne Brontë, 1848.

The plain fact…




“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people.
But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers,
storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well
in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight
to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little
do with success as we have defined it.”

In the depths of your hopes and desires…




“In the depths of your hopes and desires lies your
silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your
heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to
eternity.”


― Kahlil Gibran
