pearls of wisdom

  "Laughter is the language of the gods." 

You are a child of the earth, wherever you are is home.
If you want to ground yourself, spend more time sitting on the earth 
and listening to what she has to say. 
She's a wonderful teacher, 
but she tends to whisper so you have to listen closely....

"Wherever I am let me never forget to distinguish want from need. 
Let me be a good animal today."
-Barbara Kingsolver

"In short, all good things are wild and free."

"The kingdom of God is within you and all around you,
not in mansions of wood and stone.
Split a piece of wood and I am there.
Lift a stone and you will find Me."
The Gospel of Thomas

"You gain strength courage and confidence by every experience which you really stop to look fear in the face... You must do the thing you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

" all men die, but not all men truely live"

you ought to seriously reexamine your life."

Calvin and Hobbs

"If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it.
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful,
or believe to be beautiful."

"That the birds of worry and care fly over your head,
This you cannot change,
But that they build their nests in your hair,
This you can prevent."
