Just a few quotes from my notebook that need posting...
The world is round and the place which seems like the end, may also be the beginning.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
I have found the secret to life: that if I love until it hurts, then there is no more hurt, only more love.
...I know you are reading this poem listening for something, torn
between bitterness and hope
turning back once again to the task you cannot refuse.
I know you are reading this poem because there is nothing else
left to read
there where you have landed, stripped as you are.
...Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
