    Be kind to your sleeping heart.

    Take it out into the vast fields of light

    And let it breathe.

               
- Hafiz

 




We who lived in concentration camps can remember those who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.  They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a person but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way.

    - Viktor Frankl

 




"Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind."

            - Leonardo da Vinci
                    (1452 - 1519)

 


 

"One word frees us from the weight and pain of life; that word is love."

         --Sophocles
