    I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.

    Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.

    Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life.

    Blake's famous poem:

    To see a world in a grain of sand
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
    And eternity in an hour.

    Every morn and every night
    Some are born to sweet delight.
    Some are born to sweet delight,
    Some are born to endless night

    Blake
    Laughing Song

    When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
    And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
    When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
    And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;

    When the meadows laugh with lively green,
    And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene,
    When Mary and Susan and Emily
    With their sweet round mouths sing “Ha, Ha, He!”

    When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
    Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread,
    Come live and be merry, and join with me,
    To sing the sweet chorus of “Ha, Ha, He!”

    Compensation - A poem by Emerson

    The wings of Time are black and white,
    Pied with morning and with night.
    Mountain tall and ocean deep
    Trembling balance duly keep.
    In changing moon and tidal wave
    Glows the feud of Want and Have,
    Gauge of more and less through space,
    Electric star or pencil plays,
    The lonely Earth amid the balls
    That hurry through the eternal halls,
    A makeweight flying to the void,
    Supplemental asteroid,
    Or compensatory spark,
    Shoots across the neutral Dark.

    Man's the elm, and Wealth the vine;
    Stanch and strong the tendrils twine:
    Though the frail ringlets thee deceive,
    None from its stock that vine can reave.
    Fear not then, thou child infirm,
    There's no god dare wrong a worm;
    Laurel crowns cleave to deserts,
    And power to him who power exerts.
    Has not thy share? On winged feet,
    Lo! It rushes thee to meet;
    And all that Nature made thy own,
    Floating in air or pent in stone,
    Will rive the hills and swim the sea,
    And, like thy shadow, follow thee.

    STAR OF WISDOM

    Star that of the birth of Vishnu,
    Birth of Krishna, Buddha, Jesus,
    Told the wise ones, Heavenward looking,
    Waiting, watching for thy gleaming
    In the darkness of the night-time,
    In the starless gloom of midnight
    Shining Herald of the coming
    Of the kingdom of the righteous
    Teller of the Mystic story
    Of the lowly birth of Godhead
    In the stable of the passions,
    In the manger of the mind-soul;
    Silent singer, of the secret
    Of compassion deep and holy
    To the heart with sorrow burdened,
    To the soul with waiting weary;
    Star of all surpassing brightness,
    Thou again does deck the midnight
    Thou again does cheer the wise ones
    Watching in the creedal darkness,
    Weary of the endless battle
    With the grinding blades of error
    Tired of lifeless, useless idols,
    Of the dead forms of religions
    Spent with watching for thy shining
    Thou hast ended their despairing;
    Thou hast lighted up their pathway
    Thou hast brought again the old Truths
    To the hearts of all thy Watchers;
    To the souls of them that love thee
    Thou dost speak of joy and Gladness,
    Of the peace that comes of Sorrow.
    Blessed are they that can see thee,
    Weary wanderers in the Night-time.
    Blessed they who feel the throbbing,
    In their bosoms feel the pulsing
    Of a deep Love stirred within them
    By the great power of thy shining.
    Let us learn thy lesson truly;
    Learn it faithfully and humbly
    Learn it meekly, wisely, gladly,
    Ancient Star of holy Vishnu,
    Light of Krishna, Buddha, Jesus.


    Enter the Path ; there is no grief like hate,

    If there is to be peace in the world,
    There must be peace in the nations.

    If there is to be peace in the nations,
    There must be peace in the cities.

    If there is to be peace in the cities,
    There must be peace between neighbours.

    If there is to be peace between neighbours,
    There must be peace in the home.

    If there is to be peace in the home,
    There must be peace in the heart.

    Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.

    There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life -- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind -- are always attained by giving them to someone else.

    When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

    On Friendship
    Kahlil Gibran

    Your friend is your needs answered.
    He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
    And he is your board and your fireside.
    For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.


    When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay."
    And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
    For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
    When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
    For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
    And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
    For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.


    And let your best be for your friend.
    If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
    For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
    Seek him always with hours to live.
    For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
    And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
    For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

    Children are our treasure.

    Dancing is a moving experience which can lead to a transcendental state. Dancing always leads to joy, and many times to love.

    May neighbours respect you,
    Trouble neglect you,
    The angels protect you,
    And heaven accept you.

    An Old Irish Blessing
    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    An Old Irish Blessing

    A sunbeam to warm you,
    A moonbeam to charm you,
    A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.
    ~Irish Blessing

    An Irish Prayer

    May God give you...
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.
