Set Your Life on Fire

Some Thoughts to Ponder for Saturday:
“Truth is like fire; to tell the truth means to glow and burn.” —Gustav Klimt


“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.” —Rumi


“Your life is not about you; you are about Life. You are an instance of a universal, eternal pattern.” —Richard Rohr


“It’s time for women to stop being politely angry.” —Leymah Gbowee


“Don’t you love the Oxford Dictionary? When I first read it, I thought it was a really really long poem about everything.” —David Bowie


“We can never be born enough.” —e. e. cummings


“. . .to cry out like Cassandra, but be listened to this time.” —Grace Paley


Aldo Leopold: “Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish [her] right hand and chop off [her] left.”


“Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” —John Muir


“Our time is hungry in spirit. In some unnoticed way we have managed to inflict severe surgery on ourselves. We have separated soul from experience, become utterly taken up with the outside world and allowed the interior life to shrink. Like a stream disappears underground, there remains on the surface only the slightest trickle. When we devote no time to the inner life, we lose the habit of soul. We become accustomed to keeping things at surface level. The deeper questions about who we are and what we are here for visit us less and less. If we allow time for soul, we will come to sense its dark and luminous depth. If we fail to acquaint ourselves with soul, we will remain strangers in our own lives.” —John O’Donohue


“Justice is not negotiable.” —Dr. Denis Mukwege
