    "I went to the Holy Land, to Mecca and to Rome.
    I visited many churches, temples and mosques.
    I climbed the tallest mountain.
    I looked in the books of an old Eastern religion, to no avail.
    I opened my heart and that is where he was.

    "The Gate of the Year"

    "And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year.
    Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown, and he replied,
    Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God.
    That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way."

    COME TO THE EDGE

    "Come to the edge.
    We might fall.
    Come to the edge.
    It's too high.
    COME TO THE EDGE!
    And they came,
    And he pushed,
    And they flew."

  6. “Realise this: one day your soul
    will depart from your body and you will
    be drawn behind the curtain that floats between us
    and the unknown. While you wait for that moment, be happy,
    because you don't know where you came from and
    you don't know where you will be going.”
    Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

    “Beyond the earth,
    beyond the farthest skies
    I try to find Heaven and Hell.
    Then I hear a solemn voice that says:
    "Heaven and hell are inside.”
    Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

    Omar Khayyám

    I knew I'd heard that name before.....He got a plug in one of my all time favorite movies.

    Eulalie MacKechnie Shinn:

    "The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám is a dirty smutty book. Lying out in the woods eating sandwiches; getting drunk off of gin; ...and drinking directly out of jugs with innocent young girls".

    Great movie if you've never seen it. They don't make musicals like that anymore.

  8. “Why ponder thus the future to foresee, and jade thy brain to vain perplexity? Cast off thy care, leave God plans to him – He formed them all without consulting thee.”

    You've found God when what he tells you happens to correspond with your own desires.

    "Do not ask what the future might bring,
    Nor complain, or dwell on yesterday,
    Only, the "here and now" is of any value,
    About what has been, what will be...don't ask...
