Do not abandon Love.
~A Course in Miracles
“A fine man is a delight, but for God sake
don’t get entangled with a Jackass.”
Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.
~Jack Kornfield, A Lamp in the Darkness
Loneliness is like the rain.
It rises from the sea toward evening
and from distant plains moves into sky
where it ever belongs.
And from the sky it falls upon us in the city.
It rains here below in the twilight hours
when alleyways wind toward morning
and when lovers, finding nothing,
leave the failure of each other’s arms,
and when two who loathe each other
must share the same bed:
Then loneliness flows with the rivers….
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Book of Images
