MAY 27 2013: We watch the liner in the distance glide out from the sheltered waters of the bay, Into the arms of ocean’s vastness won. Enfolded in infinity of tide We lose it, and the last faint smoke line gray Merges into the sunset and is gone. Vanished from sight and lost, art thou, at sea, Swallowed in ocean’s blue immensity? Ah, no. Though trackless be the deep, and wide, Thy pilot shall bring thee triumphantly Into the harbour on the other side. Edith E. McGee

sunset
lyrics Soltany Zand, vocals Annette Hughes, Jane Camaho, music Matt Redall

The sun sits on the horizon,
warm & ancient.
Coming close to darkness it projects a bold shade of red.
For the heart of the world, a beautiful view.
Some people are passionate.
Others are narrow-minded and close their eyes
To the law of life.

Investigation may be likened to the long months of pregnancy, and solving a problem to the day of birth. To investigate a problem is, indeed, to solve it. Chairman Mao.

APRIL 22. There’s nothing that can help you understand your beliefs more than trying to explain them to an inquisitive child. Frank A. Clark

Some warriors look fierce, but are mild.  Some seem timid, but are vicious.  Look beyond appearances; position yourself for the advantage.    Deng Ming-Dai

NOVEMBER 17. Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

When the last eagle flies over last, crumbling mountain,
And the last lion roars, at the last, dusty fountain, 
In the shadow of the forest, though she may be old and worn, 
They will stare, unbelieving, at the Last Unicorn.

NOVEMBER 13. Utaavale Aambaa Naa Paake. You cannot rush a mango tree to grow and yield ripe mangoes in a great hurry. Indian.

p3055607

It was time for the monsoon rains to begin and a very old man was digging holes in his garden.

“What are you doing?” his neighbor asked.

“Planting mango trees” was the reply.

“Do you expect to eat mangoes from those trees?”

“No, I won’t live long enough for that.  But others will.  It occurred to me the other day that all my life I have enjoyed mangoes planted by other people.  This is my way of showing them my gratitude.”

Anthony de Mello, S.J. EXTRACTED FROM MAGDALENE SITE.

“Bother,” said Pooh, as he had no reflection in the mirror.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”


Elizabeth Kubler Ross.
