Curiosity

If curiosity killed the cat,
it was satisfaction
that brought it back.

Looking inward

Instead of looking outside of ourselves and counting potential enemies, fasting summons us to turn our glance inward, and to take the measure of our greatest Challenge: the Self, the Ego, in our own eyes and as others see us.
~ Tariq Ramadan

Wander

Spend the years of learning squandering
Courage for the years of wandering
Through a world politely turning
From the loutishness of learning.
~ Samuel Beckett

Believe in Hope

The belief that we can,
puts hope in the right perspective.
