"The servant is humble.
No longer fettered
to the false arrogance
that once was made
to sheild her from her aloneness,
she clings not to false knowlwdge,
for she knows that she does not know,
nor does she need to.
Trusting all things,
allowing all things,
she transcends all things
but first loving and embracing
And their passing
leaves not a trace upon her."
(The way of the servant, by Jon Marc Hammer)
"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms
and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.
Do not now seek the answers,
which cannot be given you
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will find them gradually,
without noticing it, and live along some distant day
into the answer."
(Rainer Maria Rilke)
"I can't believe
that God put us on this earth
to be ordinary."
"Civilization can only revive
when there shall come into being
in a number of individuals
a new tone of mind independent
of the one prevalent among the crowd
and in opposition to it
a tone of mind which will gradually win
influence over the collective one."
