Hikmet

A  L  O  H  A !
" Don't live in the world

 as if you were renting

 or here only for the summer,

 but act as if it was

 your father's house. . .





" Believe in seeds, earth,

 and the sea,

 but people above all.







Love clouds, machines,

 and books,

but people above all."  


Nazim Hikmet, 
Turkish poet, 1902-1963

Living is no laughing matter:
you must live with great seriousness
like a squirrel, for example-
I mean without looking for something beyond and above living,
I mean living must be your whole occupation.

Nazım Hikmet

People disappoint me at times. Nature does too though. Storms, natural disasters feel like a bit of a betrayal.

Enjoy the weekend.

The fat birdie seems to know where the humans leave treats, and Kitty's smile and chin reflects evidence of getting into butterscotch pudding! DrumMajor

I love the quotes. From your title, I was wondering if Hikmet was related to "kismet." I learned something new today :)
