at the huge waves of the sea,

at the circular motion of the stars;
and they pass by themselves without wondering.

for there I could best see
the moonlight amid the mountains.

Let children walk with Nature,
let them see the beautiful blendings
and communions of death and life,

is stingless indeed,
and as beautiful as life.

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
- William Butler Yeats

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.

every hill and mountain shall be made low,
the rough places will be made straight
and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed
and all flesh shall see it together.

Keep close to Nature's heart...

Well, I don't know what will happen now.
We've got some difficult days ahead.
But it doesn't matter with me now.
Because I've been to the mountaintop.
And I don't mind. Like any man,
I would like to live a long life.
Longevity has its place.
But I'm not concerned about that now.
I just want to do God's will.
And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.
And I've looked over.
And I've seen the promised land.
I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight, that we,
as a people, will get to the promised land.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

All in the dark we grope along,
And if we go amiss
We learn at least which path is wrong,
And there is gain in this.
We do not always win the race
By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Whether rainbow or butterfly,

whether crafted by nature or by a human hand -

that surpasses logic and science.

I just want to do God's will.
And he's allowed me to go to the mountain.
And I've looked over, and I've seen the promised land!

but I want you to know tonight that
we as a people will get to the promised land.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

If I feel sad I will laugh.

If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
- Og Mandino

Repressed anger still is anger, it just isn't expressed.
If you truly have no anger, you are blessed and joyful.

pound pillows, scream, curse.
Then take a deep breath, and get over it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The birds fly in the sky but they don't leave any footprints.

there is no point. He has lived that moment so totally
that what is the need to look back again and again?
He never looks ahead, he never looks back, he lives in the moment.
