They Will Come Again

 

“They will come again, the leaf and the flower . . .

Nothing is certain, only the certain spring.”

Laurence Binyon

“The Burning of the Leaves”

 

Take courage. Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. And carry the calm.

Live, Breathe, Give: A Child’s Wisdom

This week, two quotes from children’s books seem timely:

“To fear is one thing.

To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.”

– Katherine Paterson, Jacob Have I Loved

 

“Live courage, breathe courage and give courage.”

– Dhan Gopal Mukerji, Gay-Neck: The Story of a Pigeon –

 

Nourish peace and cultivate loving kindness. Then live calm, breathe calm, and give calm.
