It’s rare when I get mail, but when I do it’s usually junk mail. That’s what I got yesterday. At first glance I determined this wasn’t something I was interested in, but then the art work on the cover got my attention.
What I had received was a catalog from the Ministry of the Arts, selling note cards, calendars and more of the like. Nothing I needed, but I was surprised by the quotes accompanying them. I wanted to share some of the gems I found in this.
Let the beauty we love, be what we do. ~~ Rumi
Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they re the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom
Beauty of Style, Harmony & Grace depends on Simplicity.
True Beauty can be seen only when there is light from within
The Beauty that will save the world is Love.
The reason why the universe is eternal is that it does not live for itself; it gives life to others as it transforms ~~ Lao Tzu
The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature ~~ Joseph Campbell
There is nothing in which the birds differ more….than the way ini which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before. ~~ Robert W. Lynd

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
To be of the Earth is to know the restlessness of being a seed, the darkness of being planted, the struggle toward light, the pain of growth into the light, the joy of bursting and bearing fruit, the love of being food for someone, the scattering of your seeds, the decay of the seasons, the mystery of death, and the miracle of birth. ~~ John Soos
It’s not the years we gain but the moments we gather.
It is in our hands to create a better world for all who live in it ~~ Nelson Mandala
Peace begins with a smile ~~ Mother Teresa
I found each of these inspirational, but wonder which one, if any you found touched you?
