When the heart grieves over what is has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
If youth did not matter so much to itself it would never have the heart to go on
Leadership is much more an art, a belief, a condition of the heart, than a set of things to do. The visible signs of artful leadership are expressed, ultimately, in its practice.
A leader may symbolize and express what is best in people, like Pericles, or what is worst, like Hitler, but he cannot successfully express what is only in his heart and not in theirs
If dreams give you power, then I'm strong enough to walk through my heart till you love me.

You and I
Have so much love
Burns like a fire,
In which we bake a lump of clay
Molded into a figure of you
And a figure of me.
Then we take both of them,
And break them into pieces,
And mix the pieces with water,
And mold again a figure of you,
And a figure of me.
I am in your clay.
You are in my clay.
In life we share a single quilt.
In death we will share one bed.

What is a vow,
but an intention
spoken out before the world
so that the world, in hearing,
might take part
of the willing heart?

to join and bless
the joy of your becoming wed,
may we enter in
the truth of the words you've said,

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
The Lord's Prayer may be committed to memory quickly, but it is slowly learnt by heart.
Not the glittering weapon fights the fight, but rather the hero's heart.
