THE GEM 9 AUGUST 2016 : Ralph Waldo Emerson : A deep man believes in miracles, waits for them, believes in magic. | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

1 A cu31924011498676_0007 CRUSOEThe disciple who can wait will find all his questions answered at the right moment. But waiting is a great quality: it is deep patience, it is great trust.

30 DEC 2015 : The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul. G.K. Chesterton | the GEM COLLECTION 2015

sand-banked and fish softsplash

Lou Smith (University of Melbourne, Australia)

He then whispered to the mother where to go to find a souvenir of her missing daughter, and, when she went, weeping, to the search, she found this bulb, burst into flower, a strange odourless beautiful blossom, decked with fairy gold, and without a soul for what is the scent but the soul of a flower a fit emblem of a denizen of fairyland.
