I have never feared death Even though Its hands were more fragile Than banality.
I dread, however, to die In a land where The grave digger’s wages Exceed the price of human freedom.
Looking for, Discovering, Choosing freely, And transforming one’s essence Into a fortress.
If the price of death is higher than than all that, I deny, in absolute terms, To have ever feared death.
“You are free before the sun of the day, and free before the stars of the night;
And you are free when there is no sun and no moon and no star.
You are even free when you close your eyes upon all there is.
But you are a slave to him whom you love because you love him.
And a slave to him who loves you because he loves you.“
Gibran Khalil Gibran
“I am speaking to you-
from the edge of darkness,
and about the depths of night.
I reach out to you
from the thick layers of absolute shade.
If you are coming to visit me,
then bring me a torch,
and put up for me
a little window.
I will then watch-
the noisy crowd of the happy lane.”
“The wind sings of our nostalgia
and the starry sky ignores our dreams.
Each snow flake is a tear that fails to trickle.
Silence is full of the unspoken ,
of deeds not performed,
of confessions to secret love,
and of wonders not expressed.
our truth is hidden in our silence ,
yours and mine.”
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw
