Lightness

History is as light as individual human life,
unbearably light,
light as a feather, as dust swirling into the air,
as whatever will no longer exist tomorrow.

― Milan Kundera

Small

All difficult things have their origin
in that which is easy,
and great things
in that which is small.

− Lao Tzu

Respect

The final test of a gentleman
is his respect for those
who can be of no possible service to him.

— William Lyon Phelps

Sometimes

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes I just sits.

— A.A.Milne

Glorious Afternoon

To sit with a dog on a hillside
on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring
– it was peace.

— Milan Kundera

Hope

Hope
is the only universal liar
who never loses his reputation for veracity.

— Robert Green Ingersoll

Where Peaceful Waters Flow

Restless hearts, it has been along time,
Out here on the journey, for a glimpse of paradise,
It’s getting hard to find a place to go,
Where peaceful water flow.

— Chris de Burgh
