I’m afraid of a kiss

Like the kiss of a bee.

I suffer like this

And wake endlessly.

I’m afraid of a kiss!

I saw a navy blue bird

flying way above the sea

I walked on & I learned later

that this navy blue bird was me

I returned a paler blue bird

and this is the advice they gave me

“you must not try to be too pure

you must fly closer to the sea”

 Sinead O’Connor in “I do not want what I haven’t got”

You thought, as a boy, that a mage is one who can do anything. So I thought once. So did we all. And the truth is at as a man’s real power grows and his knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower: until at last he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he must do.

– Ursula K. LeGuin

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”

― Robert A. Heinlein

Hope (A Poem Dedicated To The Australian Prisoners Of War WWII) (Poetry)

by Prudence Wheeler, Star of the Sea College – Australia

Why do we dread the dawn,
If Hope is but a light.
If hope is but a comfort,
Take comfort in the night.

Hope is in the Summer birds,
In every breath they sing.
Hope vanishes as they flee,
as they spread their two free wings.

Hope is in our loved ones,
Or so we are told.
It is a chill when we are hot,
and warmth when we are cold.

But then I suddenly realise,
As I hear that morning call.
Hope here does not live in birds.
It does not live at all.

To call war the soil of courage and virtue is like calling debauchery the soil of love.

German

   One of the greatest artifices the devil uses to engage men in 
   vice and debauchery is to fasten names of contempt on certain 
   virtues and thus fill weak souls with a foolish fear of passing 
   for scrupulous should they desire to put them in practice. 

                                                              Pascal

 

 

The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse. ― Carlos Castaneda

“In order to have faith in his own path, a warrior does not need to prove that someone else’s path is wrong.”
