A thread to post favorite quotes and quips.

Here is one I kind of like:

[FONT="Trebuchet MS"]Browsing the dim back corner
Of a musty antique shop
Opened an old book of poetry
Angels flew out from the pages
I caught the whiff of a soul
The ink seemed fresh as today
Was that voices whispering?
The tree of the paper still grows.

Of course, our failures are a consequence of many factors, but possibly one of the most important is the fact that society operates on the theory that specialization is the key to success, not realizing that specialization precludes comprehensive thinking.

"Rumi Quotes Love


"I cannot sleep in your presence.
In your absence, tears prevent me.
You watch me My Beloved
On each sleepless night and
Only You see the difference"


"Looking at my life
I see that only Love
Has been my soul’s companion
From deep inside
My soul cries out:
Do not wait, surrender
For the sake of Love."


"If you can’t smell the fragrance
Don’t come into the garden of Love.
If you’re unwilling to undress
Don’t enter into the stream of Truth.
Stay where you are.
Don’t come our way."
~Rumi

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: 

Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.

William Blake wrote many immortal utterances including these memorable lines from Auguries of Innocence.


"To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Poetry and Hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you.
