...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


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Apiarians


"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

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love, let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
~ K. Gibran


The garden of the world has no limits except in your mind. Its presence is more beautiful than the stars.
~ Rumi



“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.



There are more fake guides, teachers in the world than stars. The real guide is the one who makes you see your inner beauty, not the one who wants to be admired and followed.
~ Shams Tabrizi


“The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”
― Maya Angelou


"Goodbyes are only for those who see with their eyes; because for those who see with heart and soul, there is no separation."
~ Rumi


"Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence."
~Lin Yutang


"To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping."
~ Chinese Proverb


"There is neither source nor end, for all things are in the Center of Time. As all the stars may be reflected in a round raindrop falling in the night: so too do all the stars reflect the raindrop. There is neither darkness nor death, for all things are, in the Light of the Moment, and their end and their beginning are one."
~Ursula K. Le Guin
