Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
We rarely hear the inward music, but we're all dancing to it nevertheless.
Let the beauty of what we love be what we do.
Don't grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.
Shine like the whole universe is yours.
Nightingales are put in cages because their songs give pleasure. Whoever heard of keeping a crow?
We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust.
Let silence take you to the core of life.
The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.
Since in order to speak, one must first listen, learn to speak by listening.
I was a tiny bug. Now a mountain. I was left behind. Now honored at the head. You healed my wounded hunger and anger, and made me a poet who sings about joy.
Beauty surrounds us.
Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
Patience is the key to joy.
The soul is here for its own joy.
Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.
Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Thirst drove me down to the water where I drank the moon's reflection.
The middle path is the way to wisdom.
That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquility.
Only from the heart Can you touch the sky.
No longer a stranger, you listen all day to these crazy love-words. Like a bee you fill hundreds of homes with honey, though yours is a long flight from here.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.
The intelligent want self-control; children want candy.
