You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone,
Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver
with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hands of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Letting go doesn't mean giving up... it means moving on. It is one of the hardest things a person can do. Starting at birth, we grasp on to anything we can get our hands on, and hold on as if we will cease to exist when we let go. We feel that letting go is giving up, quitting, and that as we all know is cowardly. But as we grow older we are forced to change our way of thinking. We are forced to realize that letting go means accepting things that cannot be. It means maturing and moving on, no matter how hard you have to fight yourself to do so."

Language may die at the hands of the schoolman: it is regenerated by the poets
You can employ men and hire hands to work for you, but you must win their hearts to have them work with you.
Much like the hands of a clock go nowhere fast, anxious thoughts run us round-and-round without taking us anywhere!
Dirty hands, iced tea, garden fragrances thick in the air and a blanket of color before me, who could ask for more?
The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.
We play a hip-hop song and suddenly 25 people on the left jump up and put their hands in the air; then you play Lost Cause and they're like, I don't know about this one.
It might be more worthwhile if we stopped wringing our hands and started ringing our congressmen
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
You ever noticed how people who believe in Creationism look really unevolved? You ever noticed that? Eyes real close together, eyebrow ridges, big furry hands and feet. "I believe God created me in one day" Yeah, looks like He rushed it.
After coming into contact with a religious man I always feel I must wash my hands
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life.
