QUOTES FOR THE DAY – to lift the veil that blinds us

‎”Accept – than act. Whattever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life” – Eckhart Tolle

“and when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
nor welcomed
but when we are silent
we are still afraid

So it is better to speak
remembering
we were never meant to survive”
― Audre Lorde, The Black Unicorn: Poems
 
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people. 
 – Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
Love begins with a metaphor. Which is to say, love begins at the point when a woman enters her first word into our poetic memory.
 
– Kundera
 
People have a habit of inventing fictions they believe wholeheartedly to ignore the truth they cannot accept.
 
– Libba Bray
 
The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.
 
– Maya Angelou

 

The important thing is not to think much, but to love much and so, do that which best stirs you to love.

– St. Teresa/Avila
