has found the sunrise.

Those who believe are not religious,
they are simply avoiding the great adventure
of religion by believing.

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize.
The first is gentleness;

be frugal and you can be generous;
avoid putting yourself before others
and you can become a leader among men.
- Lao Tzu

Be Impeccable With Your Word.
Speak with integrity.

Avoid using your word to speak against yourself
or to gossip about others.
Use the power of your word
in the direction of truth and love.

To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love.
But then one suffers from not loving.
Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer;
to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love.
To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy.
Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love
or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.
I hope you're getting this down.
- the movie Love and Death

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
