That And This

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the little
voice at the end of the day that
says 'I'll try again tomorrow.'
~ Mary Anne Radmacher

True love is neither physical nor romantic.
True love is an acceptance of all that is,
has been, will be and will not be.
~ Author unknown

God speaks to each of us as he makes us,
then walks with us silently out of the night.
These are the words we dimly hear:
You, sent out beyond your recall,
go to the limits of your longing.
Embody me.
Flare up like flame
and make big shadows I can move in.
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Don't let yourself lose me.
Nearby is the country they call life.
You will know it by its seriousness.
Give me your hand.
~ Rilke

If you listen to your fears,
you will die never knowing what
a great person you might have been.
~ Robert H. Schuller

Be kind, for everyone you meet
is fighting a great battle.
~ Philo of Alexandria

If there is something to desire,
there will be something to regret.
If there is something to regret,
there will be something to recall.
If there is something to recall,
there was nothing to regret.
If there was nothing to regret,
there was nothing to desire.
~ Vera Pavlova

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide
~ Howie Day

Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not,
knows no release from little things;
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear;
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.
~ Amelia Earhart
