MAKING LIFE WORTHWHILE

May every soul that touches mine ---
Be it the slightest contact ---
Get therefore some good;
Some little grace; one kindly thought;
One aspiration yet unfelt;
One bit of courage
For the darkening sky;
One gleam of faith
To brave the thickening ills of life;
One glimpse of brighter skies
Beyond the gathering mists ---
To make this life worthwhile
And heaven a surer heritage.

George Eliot (1819-1880)
English novelist whose real name
was Mary Ann Evans


_________

To be rich in admiration and free from envy,
to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love
with such generosity of heart that your love is
still a dear possession in absence or unkindness -
these are the gifts which money cannot buy.


Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
Scottish essayist, poet and author



KINDNESS

Kindness planted in the soil of another

with a need,

will one day blossom back to you,

a product of this spirit seed.


Kate Buxbaum-Prado
Excerpted from "Angle's Wings and Secret Things"

__________

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with
us; what we have done for others and the world
remains and is immortal.

Albert Pike (1809-1891)
American lawyer, journalist and soldier


______________

Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous;
Teach me to serve thee as thou deservest;
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to seek reward,
Save that of knowing that I do thy will.

St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556)
Principal founder of the Society of Jesus

_____________


As rain falls equally on the just and the unjust,
do not burden your heart with judgments but
rain your kindness equally on all.

The Buddha (c. 563- c. 483 BC)


 

And now, the Last Word:


True charity occurs only when there
are no notions of giving, giver or gift.

The Buddha

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bonus Quote:
Whoever approaches Me walking,
I will come to him running; and he who
meets Me with sins equivalent to the whole
world, I will greet him with forgiveness equal to it.


Mishkat Al-Masabih (14th century)
