Debasish Mridha: Oh! let...

Oh! let me love forever. Let me die in love. Life is valueless dust if love touched you never.

Eugene O'Neill: Why am...

Why am I afraid to live, I who love life and the beauty of flesh and the living colors of earth and sky and sea? Why am I afraid of love, I who love love?.. Why was I born without a skin, O God, that I must wear armor in order to touch or to be touched?
/Eugene O'Neill/

Walter Savage Landor: The damps...

The damps of autumn sink into the leaves and prepare them for the necessity of their fall; and thus insensibly are we, as years close around us, detached from our tenacity of life by the gentle pressure of recorded sorrow.

Jarod Kintz: The good,...

The good, the bad, and the ugly basically sums up my sex life. Except that I`ve never had the good.

Annie Dillard: You cannot...

You cannot mend the chromosome, quell the earthquake, or stanch the flood. You cannot atone for the dead tyrants? murders and you alone cannot stop living tyrants. As Martin Buber saw it, the world of ordinary days ?affords? us that precise association with god that redeems both us and our speck of world. God entrusts and allots to everyone an area to redeem: this creased and feeble life, ?the world in which you live, just as it is, and not otherwise.? ?Insofar as he cultivates and enjoys them in holiness, he frees their souls?he who prays and sings in holiness, eats and speaks in holiness?through him the sparks which have fallen will be uplifted, and the worlds which have fallen will be delivered and renewed.
/Annie Dillard/

Shannon L. Alder: Not every...

Not every person wants the prettiest, smartest, talented or spiritually uplifting person to build a life with. Sometimes we just want that special someone that makes sense, puts up with us, has patience, comes without drama, gives us focus and is willing to run with our half-baked ideas.

Gina Lake: What a...

What a surprise it is to discover that you have never needed to strive to survive and be happy after all. Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, who discovered that she always had the means for going home, you already have what you need to be happy and safe. You have never really left Home. However, if you don`t believe you already have what you need to be happy and safe, it is as if it isn`t true: If we don`t know the ruby slippers will take us home, it`s like not having them. The ego keeps us from seeing the truth about those ruby slippers- it keeps us from seeing the truth about life. Home is right here, right now, but we may not realize it and there for not experience Home, or Essence as much as we might.

Lailah Gifty Akita: If we...

If we focus on the problems of life, we will be paralysed. But we dwell on the promise of God; we find the faith, hope and courage to survive life.

C. JoyBell C.: I looked...

I looked long and hard for the paper roses! I found the reddest red ribbon, and a little golden card! We were all there together, many of us, in the same place; but I was the only one who found the paper roses, the only one who chose the reddest red ribbon, and the only one who topped off with a golden card. And so I learned that if people are unhappy, it is only because they don`t know how to look for the paper roses, they don`t see the reddest red ribbon, and they don`t like the little golden cards. We are all in the same wrap-shoppe in this life. But we are different. Because some of us are looking for the paper roses, choosing the reddest red ribbon, and picking up the little golden cards.

Benny Bellamacina: Life is...

Life is like a one rung ladder, some days you can be on the top and bottom of the world at the same time

Gerhard Kocher: Is there...

Is there a life after death? Can I never get some peace?

Jonathan Edwards: Prayer is...

Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is of life.
