...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

If you look around, you can find a face of God in each thing, because He is not hidden in a church, in a mosque, or a synagogue, but everywhere. As there is no one who lives after seeing him, there is also no one dying after seeing him. Who finds Him, stays forever with him.
~ Shams Tabrizi
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else's path is wrong.
~Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
“Nature, the soul, love … one recognizes through the heart, and not through the reason,”
Find the seed at the bottom of your heart and bring forth a flower.
To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.
