Thoughts

1)  “Beauty is the purest feeling of the soul.
        Beauty arises when soul is satisfied.” 



2)  “If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. 
Still life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happened better than all the riches or power in the world. 
It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. (Don't Hesitate)”. 

3)  “Beauty doesn't have to be about anything. What's a vase about? What's a sunset or a flower about? 
What, for that matter, is Mozart's Twenty-third Piano Concerto about?” 

4)  From barren brown stems to glistening leaf-buds; from the leaf-buds to snowy virginity of bloom…
It was like a flute song forgotten in another existence and remembered again. 
What? How? Why? This singing she heard that had nothing to do with her ears. The rose of the world was breathing out smell. 
It followed her through all her waking moments and caressed her in her sleep.” 

5)  “The beauty of that June day was almost staggering.After the wet spring, everything that could turn green had outdone itself in greenness and everything that could even dream of blooming or blossoming was in bloom and blossom. 

The sunlight was a benediction. The breezes were so caressingly soft and intimate on the skin as to be embarrassing.”

7) “Your external appearance to can be great, but your stunning beauty beams from within.” 


8) “There are reasons we congregate in these hot spots- 


to worship beauty and to feel its effects light up the 


electrolytes in the bloodstream."


9) “The graceful wings of a dove lead to the endless imagination in a dream wings of pain.” 


10) “A person who remains attached to his roots with his foot always on the ground grows like a green tree that bears the best fruit.” 


11)  “Is there not glory enough in living the days given to us? You should know there is adventure in simply being among those we love and the things we love, and beauty too.” 


12) “I’ve often thought of the forest as a living cathedral, but this might diminish what it truly is. If I have understood Koyukon teachings, the forest is not merely an expression or representation of sacredness, nor a place to invoke the sacred; the forest is sacredness itself. 

Nature is not merely created by God; nature is God. Whoever moves within the forest can partake directly of sacredness, experience sacredness with his entire body, breathe sacredness and contain it within himself, drink the sacred water as a living communion, bury his feet in sacredness, touch the living branch and feel the sacredness, open his eyes and witness the burning beauty of sacredness”

16) “The strange white world lay stroked by silence. No birds sang. The garden was no longer there, in this forested land. Nor were the out-buildings nor the old crumbling walls. There lay only a narrow clearing round the house now, hummocked with unbroken snowdrifts, before the trees began, with a narrow path leading away.” 


17) “A beautiful body is natures art to beautify the world.” 


18) “Is not a dew-drop on a blade of grass more beautiful than a pearl set in gold? Is not a living spring, which gushes up before us, we know not whence, more beautiful than all the fountains of Versailles?”
