Signs and Wonders

" The soul is 
made of love
 and must ever strive 
to return to love. -

Yellow Banner High
- Therefore, 
it can never find 
rest nor happiness 
in other things. 
It must lose itself in love. "

Mechthild of Magdenburg

Pulpit - Worth an Enlarging CLICK

" Truth 
isn't always beauty, 

Meditate Upon Every Day Wonders

- but 
the hunger 
for it is. "

Nadine Gordimer


Thank YOU
for Visiting!
       Warmly, Cloudia

Nothing wrong with an inconvenient ugly truth. (as long as it is truth as truth knows itself to be)

Lori Skoog said...

"Truth is not always beauty." That's for sure...but so worth it in the long run. Those who don't like the truth feel that way for a reason.

I really enjoyed the Nadine Gormier quote about truth and beauty.

What a rebuttal to John Keats' Ode on a Grecian Urn: "Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all. Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

Aloha Cloudia, yes truth can be deadly! Oh my! It must be the full moon that pulled me to say that! :)

Brian Miller said...

oh i would agree completely with that first one...probably why we yearn for love so, as well...
