"Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world." ~ Raymond Chandler
"At present we are stealing the future, selling it in the present, and calling it gross domestic product. We can just as easily have an economy that is based on healing the future instead of stealing it. We can either create assets for the future or take the assets of the future. One is called restoration and the other exploitation." ~ Paul Hawken, Blessed Unrest.
"We cannot win this battle to save species and environments without forging an emotional bond between ourselves and nature as well—for we will not fight to save what we do not love." ~ Stephen Jay Gould
"The woods were made for the hunters of dreams
The brooks for the fisher of song
To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game
The streams and the woods belong." ~ Sam Walter Foss
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal. ~ Lord Byron
"Be humble, for the worst thing in the world is of the same stuff as you; be confident, for the stars are of the same stuff as you." ~ Nicholai Velimirovic
"Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know." ~ William Saroyan
"It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken, and the wisest might err." ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
"The wise are wise only because they love. The fools are fools only because they think they can understand love." ~ Paulo Coelho
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." ~ St. Paul
"If you would progress a long way on this road and ascend to the Mansions of your desire, the important thing is not to think much, but to love much; do, then, whatever most arouses you to love." ~ St. Teresa of Avila
"Love is letting go of fear; courage is letting go of fear. Do not let fear stop you but trust your heart to lead you in the right direction." The Daily Chill from Care2.com.
"It is not life that matters. It is the courage that we bring to it." ~ Yogi Bhajan
"Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Speak the truth always even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong." ~ Kingdom of Heaven
"In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it." ~ Lao-Tzu
"Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed." ~ Buddha
"I will not touch you. What are you looking at?"
"Ahhhh... yes. The sea... is always... good." ~ The Last Unicorn
"Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears. And how else can it be? The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain." ~ Kahlil Gibran.
"The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea." ~ Isak Dinesen
"Healing is about opening our hearts, not closing them. It is about softening the places in us that won't let love in. Healing is a process... it is about being broken and whole at the same time." ~ Geneen Roth
"My hand is the lord. Boundlessly blissful is my hand. This hand holds all healing secrets. Which make whole with its gentle touch." ~ Rig Veda
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." ~ Winston Churchill
"Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it." ~ Buddha
"Let nothing trouble you, let nothing frighten you. All things pass away; God only is immutable. Those who possess God want for nothing." ~ St. Teresa of Avila.
"Love is the ultimate state, where compassion prevails and kindness rules.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
"Compassion is the keen awareness of the interdependence of all things." ~ Thomas Merton
May the Long Time Sun shine upon thee, all love surround thee. And may the pure light within thee, guide thy way on.
