I know
it's hard to be reconciled
not everything is exactly
the way it ought to be

but please turn around
and step into the future
leave memories behind
enter the land of hope

--Zbigniew Herbert, from A Life

I found this quote about a year ago in a magazine and posted it on my bulletin board. I love the message and I'd like to think that because of it's message I have tried to look to the future and all the hope that it has to offer a little bit more.

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon From the slow opening curtains of the clouds Walking in beauty to her midnight throne!- George Croly

The radiance in some places is so great as to be fairly dazzling . . . every crystal, every flower a window opening into heaven, a mirror reflecting the Creator.- John Muir

If you wish to know the divine, feel the wind on your face and the warm sun on your hand.
- Eido Tai Shimano Roshi
God's miracles are to be found in nature itself; the wind and waves, the wood that becomes a tree - all of these are explained biologically, but behind them is the hand of God.
- Ronald Reagan
To the dull mind all nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light.- Ralph Waldo Emerson
