Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe me.”
Look what happens with
A love like that.
It lights the whole sky.

– Hafiz of Persia

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Albert Einstein

He who has imagination without learning, has wings and no feet.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott

 

 

 

 

And…


And For No Reason

And For no reason I start skipping like a child. And For no reason I turn into a leaf That is carried so high I kiss the sun's mouth And dissolve. And For no reason A thousand birds Choose my head for a conference table, Start passing their Cups of wine And their wild songbooks all around. And For every reason in existence I begin to eternally, To eternally laugh and love! When I turn into a leaf And start dancing, I run to kiss our beautiful Friend And I dissolve in the Truth That I Am. Hafiz/ Trans. Ladinsky
