If for a moment we make way with our petty lives, wish no ill on anyone, apprehend no ill,
cease to be but a crystal which reflects a ray -
  what shall we not reflect!
       What a universe will appear crystallized
  and radiant around us." ~ Henry David Thoreau

"Foolish, ignorant people indulge in careless lives,
         whereas a clever man guards his attention as his most prized possession."  ~ Buddha

"At the end of all things, the blessed will say
        'We never lived anywhere but in heaven.'" ~ C.S. Lewis

"To make all life
more poetical, more sane
more living, loving
   To experience
the true of all things
     this moment ...
        this moment ...
  this moment."         ~ William Segal

"Always we hope someone else has the answer. Some other place will be better, it will all turn out.
            This is it.
       No one else has the answer. No other place will be better. It has already turned out."  ~ Lao-tzu

"...the genie-magic is you."     ~ the last line of a poem in my dream, circa 1999
