The Guest is inside you, and also inside me;
You know the sprout is hidden inside the seed.
We are all struggling; none of us has gone far.
Let your arrogance go and look around inside.
The blue sky opens out further and farther,
The daily sense of failure goes away.
The damage I have done to myself fades.
A million suns come forward with light.
When I sit firmly in that world.
Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
– Alice Mackenzie Swaim
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
– Robert Louis Stevenson
