In a search for the ideal quote-- that which is the essence of purpose in this blog and a final respite of peaceful rest, I stumbled upon some close calls-- those words of wisdom that have captured other pieces of my heart, but did not manage to capture the whole of this page. However, I do deem it thus necessary to give credit where credit is due and it would be a shame to ingest such forcible and emotional words and not share them with the dearest. And thus is my humble introduction for those words which need none....
There are moments when, no matter the posture of the body, the soul is on its knees.
"Life is something that happens when you can't get to sleep."
Can I see another's woe, and not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another's grief, and not seek for kind relief?
He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise.
If the Sun and Moon should ever doubt, they'd immediately go out.
To see the world in a grain of sand,
and to see heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hands,
and eternity in an hour.
To generalize is to be an idiot.
The man who never in his mind and thoughts travel'd to heaven is no artist.
Okay, so in my search I rediscovered and loved William Blake. You'll pardon me, but his words are poetry and beauty in themselves.... In his own words, "Exuberance is beauty." And so let me and us all be therefore exuberant and beautiful :D
