Heart Happy

Progressing along -

I was trying to find a quote I thought would help Cindy Sheehan and I came across three haiku Chris wrote when he was in second grade. He wrote them in a computer class I taught where the children were prompted by the computer for words. Here they are:

California shines
Like the golden bright sun,
Living, Loving good.

Sun and the Earth
Two marbles spinning in space
Earth, Sand Grain; Sun shore.

Sun chugs fire and heat.
Earth chews sun's energy,
Joined in happiness.

I don't find what I'm looking for again, but I do find this quote by Federico Garcia Lorca.

"To go wisely through life, never forget that the frog is always harshly critical of the delirious flight of the lark."

How about this? Goethe said, "Every object well contemplated creates an organ for its perception."

And these:

James Thurber: "Let's not look back in anger, or forward in fear, but around in awareness."

Van Gogh: "There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."

Emily Dickinson: "To live is so startling, it leaves but little time for other occupations."

Socrates: " A tyrant ... is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader."

Plato: "At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet."

(I am now off-message, but I can't stop. I sail in joyful realms.)

Robert Bly:

       I sit down and fold my legs ...
       The half dark in the room is delicious.
       How marvelous to be a thought
       entirely surrounded by brains.
