A boy is a magical creature-you can lock him out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart.

Allan Beck

The good talk that is inseparable from a wine dinner is even more important than the wines that are being served. Never bring up your better bottles if you are entertaining a man who cannot talk. Keep your treasures for a night when those few who are nearest to your heart can gather round your table, free from care, with latchkeys in their pockets and no last train to catch.

Maurice Healy

He caused the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maked glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengthened manís heart.

Psalms

We manage to swallow flesh only because we do not think of the cruel and sinful thing that we do. Cruelty... is a fundamental sin, and admits of no arguments or nice distinctions. If only we do not allow our heart to grow callous, it protests against cruelty, is always clearly heard; and yet we go on perpetrating cruelties easily, merrily, all of us - in fact, anyone who does not join in is dubbed a crank

Rabindranath Tagore

How simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. . . . All that is required to feel that here and now is happiness is a simple, frugal heart.

Nikos Kazantzakis

Tears are the safety valve of the heart when too much pressure is laid on it.

Albert Smith

What's going on here is a redefinition of Christmas as a time of family celebration rather than as a time of the community faithful celebrating the birth of the savior...There is a risk that we will lose one more of our Christian rituals, one that's at the heart of our faith.

Robert Johnston

Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand.

Dr. Seuss

To celebrate the heart of Christmas is to forget ourselves in the service of others.

Henry C. Link

This is Christmas: not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols, but the humble heart that receives anew the wondrous gift, the Christ.

Frank McKibben

It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.

W. T. Ellis

The earth has grown old with its burden of care But at Christmas it always is young, The heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair And its soul full of music breaks the air, When the song of angels is sung.

Phillips Brooks

Christmas will always be in the hearts of God's children everywhere as they extend a helping hand to a friend in need ... as they go about reflecting God's goodness in the little quiet and unheralded expressions of a loving heart ... as they share the light of the world with those who live in darkness .

Jane Hillsmen

Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted -- in body, mind, and heart -- and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow -- or we begin to flow more in our lives.

Cybele Tomlinson

Returned me, oh sun, to my wild destiny, rain of the ancient wood, bringing me back to the aroma of swords that fall from the sky, the solitary peace of pasture and rock, the damp at the river-margins, the smell of the larch tree, the wind alive like a heart beating in the crowded restlessness of the towering araucaria. Earth, give me back your pure gifts, the towers of silence which rose from the solemnity of their roots. I want to go back to being what I have not been, and learn to go back from such deeps that amongst all natural things I could live or not live; it does not matter to be one stone more, the dark stone, the pure stone which the river bears away.

Pablo Neruda

By embracing your mother wound as your yoga, you transform what has been a hindrance in your life into a teacher of the heart.

Phillip Moffitt

Keep close to Nature's heart, yourself; and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

John Muir†

Not the glittering weapon fights the fight, but rather the hero's heart.

Proverb

My heart is tuned to the quietness that the stillness of nature inspires.

Hazrat Inayat Khan†

Every particle of every thing rocks, water, flour, human has been in the same place flaming in the heart of our ancient sun before the earth came flying out of it. The irises in your eyes the tissue of roses the slow giant rocks in mountainheads were all born flaming locked in the sun as it drifted like a light on dark water.

Lawrence Collins

Prayer is a wine which makes glad the heart of man

Bernard of Clairvaux

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.

Mahatma Gandhi

Material blessings, when they pay beyond the category of need, are weirdly fruitful of headache.

Philip Wylie

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions

Rainer Maria Rilke
