In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends.
~ Okakura Kakuzo, The Book of Tea
Words are not just words. They have moods, climates of their own.
Here, fire turns into water;
Here, the dancing of the rain declares the sun.
There’s no opposition in existence, no contradiction;
Everything supports everything else.
You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.
~ James M. Barrie
Let’s dare to be ourselves, for we do that better than anyone else can.
~ Shirley Briggs
