With That Moon Language - Hafiz

Admit something:
Everyone you see, you say to them, "Love me."
Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise someone would call the cops.
Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.
Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye
that is always saying,
with that sweet moon language,
what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?

As one grows older one is more impatient with subterfuges and
shams generally, and increasingly desirious that the "last run" at least should
be free from them. The world is apparently so confused that the least one can
do for it is to keep one"s mental integrity and to hold honestly to such poor
wisdom as one has been able to garner on the way.
~ Jane Addams

The most successful people in the world are the ones who run with what they have. They don't wait for "perfect." They run with "imperfect" and accomplish "unbelievable."

Guess what, April is poetry month!

I find this one very something or other:

Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth
"You owe me."
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights up
the whole sky.

-Hafiz

“This whole ‘Poor lonely Jen’ thing, this idea that I’m so unlucky in love? I actually feel I’ve been unbelievably lucky in love. I don’t feel like I’m supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I’m not. I’m right where I’m supposed to be.”

QUOTE(electric @ Apr 25 2006, 04:42 PM) *
" Education is something which should be apart from the necessities of earning a living, not a tool therefore. It needs contemplation, fallow periods, the measured and guided study of the history of man's reiteration of the most agonizing question of all: Why? Today the good ones, the ones who want to ask why, find no one around with any interest in answering the question, so they drop out, because theirs is the type of mind which becomes monstrously bored at the trade-school concept." <BR> <BR>- John D. MacDonald

Recently I have found this quote very very insightful

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
—Thomas Jefferson, letter to Albert Gallatin, 1802
