Apiarian


"Were I to be the founder of a new sect,
I would call them Apiarians, and, after the example of the bee, advise them to extract the honey of every sect."  
- Thomas Jefferson

I am merely a guest born in this world,
to know the secrets that lie beyond it.
~ Rumi


In a night full of pain and darkness,
be a candle spreading light until dawn.
~ Rumi


True generosity is an offering; given freely and out of pure love.
No strings attached. No expectations.
Time and love are the most valuable possession you can share.
~Suze Orman


"One who knows how to show and to accept kindness
will be a friend better than any possession." -
Sophocles


 
Do not stay long with those who are not living in the heart.
~ Rumi




"Every day you are alive is a special occasion.
Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God."
~ Mary Manin Morrissey


 
"Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open."
~John Barrymore


 
"People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us."
~Iris Murdoch (1919-1999)


You can study God through everything and everyone in the universe, because God is not confined in a mosque, synagogue or church. But if you are still in need of knowing where exactly His abode is, there is only one place to look for Him: in the heart of a true lover.
~ Rumi
