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.

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

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.
