love


Random quote of the day:

“Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love.”

Random quote of the day:

“Magic is no more than the art of employing consciously invisible means to produce visible effects. Will, love and imagination are magic powers that everyone possesses; and whoever knows how to develop them to their fullest extent is a magician. Magic has but one dogma, namely, that the seen is the measure of the unseen.”

—W. Somerset Maugham, The Magician: A Novel

Random quote of the day:

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds, it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings, but never a natural death. Every lover could be brought to trial as the murderer of his own love.”

—Anaïs Nin, The Four-chambered Heart, Vol. 3

Random quote of the day:

“Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to little peanut it will give up its secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also – if you love them enough. In a crowded auditorium of people I can pick out the spiritual souls almost at a glance.

―George Washington Carver, quoted in The Man Who Talks With Flowers by Glenn Clark

Random quote of the day:

“The thought manifests as the word,
The word manifests as the deed,
The deed develops into a habit,
And habit hardens in character,

So watch the thought and it’s ways with care,
And let it spring from love,
Born out of concern for all beings…

As the shadow follows the body,
As we think so we become.

—Buddha, The Dhammapada

Random quote of the day:

“Love one another, but make not a bond
of love:
     Let it rather be a moving sea between
     the shores of your souls.
     Fill each other’s cup but drink not from
     one cup.
     Give one another of your bread but eat
     not from the same loaf.
     Sing and dance together and be joyous,
     but let each one of you be alone,
     Even as the strings of a lute are alone
     though they quiver with the same music.

—Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
