Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul – 
and you answer

     There is nothing but beauty – 
     and beauty has only one perfect expression,
     All the rest is a lie.

        Each day, we wake slightly altered, 
     and the person we were yesterday is dead. 
     So why, one could say, be afraid of death, 
     when death comes all the time?

What is hope?
It is the insight that imagination is more real
and reality less than it looks.
It is the hunch that 

the overwhelming brutality of facts
that oppress and repress is not the last word

the great treasure to possess is the unknown.

Life is not what it's supposed to be.
It's what it is.
The way you cope with it is
what makes the difference.

Within each of us there is a silence – 
a silence as vast as a universe.
We are afraid of it …
And we long for it.

Myths are not literally true,
but they do not represent untruths, lies, or fantasies;
they are metaphorically true and often are the only way
to communicate the truth they represent.

Healing may not be so much about getting better,
As about letting go of everything that isn’t you 
– all of the expectations, all of beliefs – 
and becoming who you are.

     You can create your own miracle. But you do it by
     never looking past all the little steps along the way.

     not with the body it belongs to 
     but with the object of its attention.
