“Do not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential.

 

One has only so much time in this world,

so devote it to the work and the people most important to you,

to those you love and things that matter.

 

One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn’t really like,

or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else.”

They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,

where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”

“I’ve learned a lot this year..

 

I learned that things don’t always turn our the way you planned,

or the way you think they should.

 

And I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong

that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before.

 

I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken,

 

and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones,

 

as long as you have people who love you.”

” We’re anything brighter than even the sun

(we’re everything greater
than books
might mean)

we’re ever anything more than believe

(with a spin
leap
alive we’re alive)

we’re wonderful one times one”
