We must remain as close to the flowers, the grass, and the butterflies
as the child is who is not yet so much taller than they are.
We adults, on the other hand, have outgrown them
and have to lower ourselves to stoop down to them. . . .
Whoever would partake of all good things
must understand how to be small at times.
~Friedrich Nietzsche, (1844 – 1900)

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Doubly inscribed on delicate wings,
it appears once again:
the theme universal –
song of the spheres,
secret of life,
soul’s sweet anthem.
Nearer than imagined,
close enough to touch,
what we long for,
what we seek,
what we are.

Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance,
but. . .what lies clearly at hand.
