When humans participate in ceremony, they enter a sacred space. Everything outside of that space shrivels in importance. Time takes on a different dimension. Emotions flow more freely. The bodies of participants become filled with the energy of life, and this energy reaches out and blesses the creation around them. All is made new everything becomes sacred.Sun Bear
Sometimes the only sense we can make out of life is a sense of humor.American Greetings Card
Friends need not agree in everything or go always together, or have no comparable other friendships of the same intimacy. On the contrary, in friendship union is more about ideal things: and in that sense it is more ideal and less subject to trouble than marriage is.George Santayana
People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one.Leo J. Burke
Today I accidentally stepped on a snail on the sidewalk in front of our house. And I thought, I too am like that snail. I build a defensive wall around myself, a 'shell' if you will. But my shell isn't made out of a hard, protective substance. Mine is made out of tinfoil and paper bags.Jack Handey Deep Thoughts
The sure conviction that we could if we wanted to is the reason so many good minds are idle.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
A child's hand in yours -- what tenderness and power it arouses. You are instantly the very touchstone of wisdom and strength.
I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find - at the age of fifty, say - that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about...It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you.
