ANCIENT WISDOM QUOTES FROM PLUTARCH: Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better….
What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.
My soul is a princess in her tower closed
gazing on life through five little windows.
A farmer got so old that he couldn’t work the fields anymore. So he would spend the day just sitting on the porch. His son, still working the farm, would look up from time to time and see his father sitting there.
Do not stay in the dark. Light your lamp carefully.
When the road seems too long, When darkness sets in.
When everything turns out wrong,
And you can’t find a friend. Remember – you are loved.
DUSK wraps the village in its dim caress;
Each chimney’s vapour, like a thin grey rod,
Mounting aloft through miles of quietness,
Whenever there is a gap in your life, fill it with love.
For flowers that bloom about our feet,
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet,
For song of bird, and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Tomorrow’s in our hands now
Find the words that matter
Say them out loud
And make it better somehow
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists. Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty. Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters,
