"If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise, every woman in Africa would be a millionaire"
― George Monbiot



Katie Couric


George Kiser




“There is almost a sensual longing for communion
with others who have a large vision.
The immense fulfillment of the friendship
between those engaged
in furthering the evolution of consciousness
has a quality impossible to describe.”
~ Teilhard de Chardin




Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,
what batters you becomes your strength.
Move back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.
In this uncontainable night,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.
And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am."

Sonnets to Orpheus II, 29


Margaret Wheatley


“When we seek for connection 
we restore the world to wholeness.
Our seemingly separate lives
become meaningful
as we discover
how truly necessary we are to each other."
~Margaret Wheatley


"The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community."







"We lie in the lap of immense intelligence, which makes us receivers of its truth and organs of its activities." — R.W. Emerson

First kiss


Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt." ~ Mesa Selimovic
