We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves” the universe ‘peoples”. Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique reaction of the whole universe.
~Alan Watts

Let yourself be silently drawn 
by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.
 ~ Rumi

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. 
~Henry David Thoreau

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. 
~Eleonora Duse

Do you want to improve the world? I don’t think it can be done. The world is sacred. It can’t be improved. 
~Lao-Tzu

Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless. 
~Bill Watterson

Within us is a secret longing to remember the light, to step out of time in this dancing world. It’s where we began and where we return.
~Jack Kornfield

There is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one’s self, the very meaning of one’s soul. 
~Edith Wharton

We don’t know the reasons that propel us on a spiritual journey, but somehow our life compels us to go. Something in us knows that we are not just here to toil at our work. There is a mysterious pull to remember.
~Jack Kornfield
