A Sign of Strength

 

“Don’t ever mistake my silence for ignorance

My calmness for acceptance

Or my kindness for weakness.

Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness,

But a sign of strength.”

– Dalai Lama –

 

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.

Willows, Aspens, and Little Breezes

 

Willows whiten, aspens quiver,

Little breezes dusk and shiver.

– Alfred, Lord Tennyson, “The Lady of Shalott”

 

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.
