Pablo Picasso


It is easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them.

Alfred Adler


The winds of grace blow all the time. All we need to do is set our sails.



The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe.

Joanna Rogers Macy


Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

Teilhard de Chardin

Hermann Hesse, Reflections On War and Politics
