A friend, who is far away is sometimes nearer than the one who is at hand. The mountain far away is more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing.
Through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain. A poet is a bird of unearthly excellence, which escapes from his celestial realm, arrives in this world warbling. If we do not cherish him, he spreads his wings and flies back into his homeland. All that spirits desire, spirits attain. An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind. And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. Coming generations will learn equality from poverty, and love from woes.
Death most resembles a prophet who is without honor is his own land or a poet who is a stranger among his people. Exaggeration is truth that has lost its temper. Faith is knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof. Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity. Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is giving me that which you need more than I do. I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant,and kindness from the unkind yet, strange, I am u ngrateful to those teachers.
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit. I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires. I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art. If my survival caused another to perish, then death would be sweeter and more beloved. If the others injure you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure others, you will always remember. If you love some people, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours.
And if they don't they never were. If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees. If your heart is a volcano, how shall you expect flowers to bloom? Keep me away from the wisdom, which does not cry, the philosophy, which does not laugh, and the greatness, which does not bow before children. Knowledge cultivates your seeds and does not sow in you seeds. Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. Love is trembling happiness. Love.....it surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be. March on. Do not tarry.
To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand. Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge. Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. Poverty is a veil that obscures the face of greatness. An appeal is a mask covering the face of tribulation. Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be. Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.
