Kindness:The golden Chain by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To the world you might be one person,
but to one person, you might be the world.
Kindness is the golden chain by which
our world is bound together.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers
and cities;but to know someone who thinks and feels with us,
and who, though distant,is close to us in spirit, this makes
the earth for us an inhabited garden.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

You too are your past by Will Durant

It is a mistake to think that the past is dead.
Nothing that has ever happened is quite without influence at this moment.
The present is merely the past rolled up and concentrated in this second of time.

You, too, are your past; often your face is your autobiography;
you are what you are because of what you have been; because of
your heredity stretching back into forgotten generations;
because of every element of environment that has affected you,

every man or woman that has met you, every book that you have read,
every experience that you have had; all these are accumulated in
your memory, your body, your character, your soul.

So with a city, a country, and a race; it is its past, and
cannot be understood without it.
Will Durant

Trees by Charles Simic

Trees like country preachers
On their rostrums,
Their arms raised in blessing
Over the evening fields.
Every leaf now, every weed
Helping the night
Darken and quiet the world
For what's to come.

Your Love by Rumi

Your love lifts my soul from the body to the sky
And you lift me up out of the two worlds.
I want your sun to reach my raindrops,
So your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.
