Quotes for Today

Traversing sun leads to a new season,
Vernal breath attunes the leaves.
When the sun begins its new pattern, spring follows. The air warms, and the world rejoices. A new breath comes over all things, and even the trembling leaves are attuned to the vernal rhythm. Turn your face to the sun, as flowers know how to do.
-365 Tao

I believe that none can "save" his fellow man by making a choice for him. To help him, he can indicate the possible alternatives, with sincerity and love, without being sentimental and without illusion. The knowledge and awareness of the freeing alternatives can reawaken in an individual all his hidden energies and put him on the path to choosing respect for "life" instead of for "death."
-Erich Fromm

You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.

Waves are breaking in my mind
and the memories of your eyes
are chimes in my ears
ringing out sounds
that swim through my veins
my heart beats a rhythm
