Saturday - November 16, 2013

But deep love is the desire to give
More than the living touch of warmth and fire,
More than the shy comfort of the little flesh and hands;
It is the need to give
Down to the last dark kernel of the heart,
Down to the final gift of the mind;
It is a need to give you that release which comes
Only of understanding and to know
Trust without whimpering doubt and fear.

(Josephine Johnson, 1910 - 1990)

However close we sometimes seem to that dark and final abyss, let no one of peace and freedom despair. For no one stands alone. If we all can persevere, if we can in every land and office look beyond our own shores and ambitions, then surely the age will dawn in which the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

(John F. Kennedy, 1917 - 1963)

This is the day we are given,
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

The soul remains a perfect sphere when it neither pushes out after something nor shrinks back into itself, neither expanding nor contracting, but shining with a radiance by which it sees the truth of all things as well as the truth inside itself.

(Marcus Aurelius, 121 - 180)
