Dreams are.....

Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you.

Love for my...

So I'll sit and rock and be happy,
And meditate mostly on love!...
Love for my mother and dad...
And love for the friends I have had!
Love for the blessings God gives me,
Love for the sunshine and showers,
Love for the creatures God put here,
And love for the trees and the flowers...


~Gertrude Buckingham, "To Ruth Ann"

Silence...

 
 
There is something in the nature of silence which affects me deeply. Why it is I know not; but I do know that I love to be alone at such an hour as this. I love to forget the outward world and hold communion with the beings of the mind. 

~Charles Lanman, "Musings," 1840

I'll just be me...

If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

Be thankful...

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. 

~Albert Schweitzer

My thoughts are free...

My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction.

When you're in love....

When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks. 

~Natalie Clifford Barney

Sometimes...

Sometimes it's a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence. ~David Byrne

Let go of thinking...

Put your thoughts to sleep, do not let them cast a shadow over the moon of your heart. Let go of thinking.

My soul is from elsewhere....


All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.

...call it love...!!!

We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love. 

~Robert Fulghum, True Love

Give a man a mask...

Give a man a mask and he'll become his true self....!!!

We stopped searching....

We stopped searching for monsters under the bed.. When we realised they were inside us!!!

A line of gold thread...


Theres something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself.

 ~John Gregory Brown,Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery, 1994

Hundreds....

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.

Searching for a magic door....

Obsessed by a fairy tale, we spend our lives searching for a magic door and a lost kingdom of peace.

To be nobody but yourself....

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. 

~e.e. cummings, 1955

..that person was you...!!



“Looking back you realize that a very special person passed briefly through your life and that person was you. It is not too late to become that person again.”

In your beauty...

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that light becomes this art. 

~Rumi, as interpreted by Coleman Barks

Autumnal face....

No spring nor summer’s beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face....

Nothing else but light...

Louder and louder the deep thunder rolled, as through the myriad halls of some vast temple in the sky; fiercer and brighter came the lightning; more and more heavily the rain poured down. The eye, partaking of the quickness of the flashing light, saw in its every gleam a multitude of objects which it could not see at steady noon in fifty times that period.... in a trembling, vivid, flickering instant, everything was clear and plain: then came a flash of red into the yellow light; a change to blue; a brightness so intense that there was nothing else but light; and then the deepest and profoundest darkness. 

~Charles Dickens, Martin Chuzzlewit, Chapter XLII

There is something haunting...

There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery. 

~Joseph Conrad

If there's one thing...

If there's one thing that I pray for,
      As I live my daily life,
      It's that I may be courageous
      When I'm faced with bitter strife!...


So, I humbly pray for courage
      To be with me morn and night,
      Thro' the coldness of the Winter
      And the Summer's bright sunlight!


~Gertrude T. Buckingham, "Courage"
