Thoughts from traveling companions - Quotes to think about

There lives more faith in honest doubt, Believe me, than in half the creeds.  Alfred Lord Tennyson

Use what talents you possess, the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.   Henry Van Dyke

O You who ordered the sea and the winds, and they fell silent,come and walk upon the waves of my heart, and all that is within me will become peaceful and reassured,and it will be granted to me to be inundated with you, my only good,and to contemplate you, O light of my eyes.  May the darkness of my anxious thoughts not hide you from me, and, O Lord,  may my soul take refuge in the shadow of your wings.  Let it rather exult with joy and say:  Indeed, I repose in blessed peace in your bosom.  Augustine of Hippo

Those who don't feel this love pulling them like a river, Those who don' drink dawn like a cup of spring water or take in sunset like supper, those who don't want to change, let them sleep.  Rumi

You that love lovers,
this is your home.  Welcome!

In the midst of making form, love
made this form that melts form,
with love for the door,
soul the vestibule.
Watch the dust grains moving
in the light near the window.

Their dance is our dance.

We rarely hear the inward music,
but we're all dancing to it nevertheless,

directed by the one who teaches us,
the pure joy of the sun,
our music master.  Rumi
