Zora Neal Hurston ...

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place

Egyptian Proverb ...

He who chatters with you
Will chatter about you
And what is man other than a comet
that flashes brilliant light for a moment
only to be reduced to ashes?

RUMI ...

A soul which is not clothed with the inner garment of Love
Should be ashamed of its existence

" Nature never did betray the heart that loved her"

(William Wordsworth)

The Last Poets ...

"Here we are the employers of all love
but yet we are working overtime to cover up our loneliness"

Parting ...

Who knows when meeting shall ever be.
It might be for years or
It might be forever

Let us then take a lump of clay,
Wet it, pat it,
And make an image of you
And an image of me.
Then smash them, crash them,
And, with a little water,
Knead them together.

And out of the clay we'll remake
An image of you, and an image of me.
Thus in my clay, there's a little of you,
And in your clay, there's a little of me.
And nothing will ever set us apart.

Living, we'll be forever in each other's heart,
And dead, we'll be buried together.

( This is an untitled poem by Madame Kuan, that was translated by Bruce Lee. Madam Kuan was the wife of the great Yuan Chao Mengfu and was herself a painter who taught for a time at the Imperial Court. Tradition has it that when in middle age, Chao considered taking a mistress, Madam Kuan wrote her husband this poem, which touched his heart and changed his mind.)

Love Is Like A Friendship Caught On Fire ...

Love is like a friendship caught on fire.
In the beginning a flame,
Very pretty, often hot and fierce
But still only light and flickering
As love grows older, our hearts mature
And our love becomes as coals,
Deep-burning and unquenchable.
(A poem of Bruce Lee's that he recited to Linda Lee Cadwell)

To you
All you who are dreamers, too
Help me to make
Our world anew
I reach out my dreams to you
(Langston Hughes)
