To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try to understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy

who walked through the huts comforting others,

to choose one's own way.

For some of us, the world appears to provide
only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Look at this butterfly, so beautiful, so delicate.
I can enjoy this butterfly from a distance,

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

relax into being ourselves,
play with our inner child,

hang "go away" on the door whenever we want,
clean and tidy often... or never,
launch from and return to,
are truly ourselves.
