in older times,
when a person had a secret that could not be shared,
he would instead go atop a mountain,
make a hollow in a tree,
whisper the secret into that hollow
and cover it with mud.

the wise are free from doubts,
the virtuous from anxiety,
the brave from fear

Fate is like gravity.

You can jump up and down until your heart's content,
but the earth still falls into the sun,
and the sun still courses through the galaxy,

both indifferent to your short-lived and insignificant defiance.

I always thought one minute flies by.
But sometimes it really lingers on.
Once, a person pointed at his watch and said to me,
that because of that minute,
he'd always remember me.

It was so charming listening to that.
But now I look at my watch and tell myself
that I have to forget this man

starting this very minute.

so many thoughts.........

this is dangerous.

people talk about "finding" their lives.
in reality, your life is not something you find-
it's something you create.

penny for your thoughts



_____________________________________________________






Apollo loved Daphne, and longed to obtain her; and he who gives
oracles to all in the world was not wise enough to look into his
own fortunes. He saw her hair flung loose over her shoulders,
and said, "If so charming in disorder, what would it be if
arranged?" He saw her eyes bright as stars; he saw her lips, and
was not satisfied with only seeing them. He admired her hands
and arms bared to the shoulder, and whatever was hidden from view
he imagined more beautiful still. He followed her; she fled,
swifter than the wind, and delayed not a moment at his
entreaties. "Stay," said he, "daughter of Peneus; I am not a
foe. Do not fly me as a lamb flies the wolf, or a dove the hawk.
It is for love I pursue you. You make me miserable, for fear you
should fall and hurt yourself on these stones, and I should be
the cause. Pray run slower, and I will follow slower. I am no
clown, no rude peasant. Jupiter is my father, and I am lord of
Delphos and Tenedos, and know all things, present and future. I
am the god of song and the lyre. My arrows fly true to the mark;
but alas! An arrow more fatal than mine has pierced my heart! I
am the god of medicine, and know the virtues of all healing
plants. Alas! I suffer a malady that no balm can cure!"

have the conviction
to put your intentions to paper

an unwritten wish
is just a dream

in writing,
it's a commitment,
a goal

according to the size of our dreams
and the degree to which we are
in touch with our mission

relationships are all there is.

everything in the universe only exists
because it is in relationship to everything else.

nothing exists in isolation.

we have to stop pretending
we are individuals that can go it alone.

at the hospital
the nun walks in
prays with them
then tells the patient
"I'll see you upstairs"

I'm not sure that is appropriate to say to someone about to go into surgery.
