This is what the things can teach us: to fall, patiently to trust our heaviness. Even a bird has to do that before he can fly. -Rainer Maria Rilke Keep not standing fixed and rooted. Briskly venture, briskly roam. -Goethe This now is it. This. Your deepest need and desire is satisfied by the moment’s energy here in your hand. -Rumi From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson I dwell in Possibility -Emily Dickinson Courage lies not in the heat of pursuit But in the moments spent silent, Deep in wait. -Kate Richey Only those who do nothing make no mistakes. Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still. Life's most urgent question is, what are you doing for others? You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there. It was early last September as near as I can remember While strolling down the lane in tipsy pride. Not a word did I utter as I lay down in the gutter, And this pig came up and laid down by my side. Not a soul was I disturbing as I lay there by the curbing When this high toned lady stopped and I heard her say You may tell someone who boozes by the company he chooses And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
