Inspirations II

As I organized piles of papers today, in a lame attempt at some preliminary spring cleaning, I came across these various quotes that I had been saving...

"If each of us sweeps
in front of our own steps,
the whole world would be clean."
- Goethe

"It is by failure that a lover
stays aware of how they've loved.
Failure is the key
to the kingdom within."
- Rumi

"Work is not always required.
There is such a thing
as sacred idleness,
the cultivation of which
is now fearfully neglected."
- George McDonald

"Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes
on the grass on a summer day
listening to the murmur of water,
or watching the clouds float
across the sky,
is hardly a waste of time."
- Sir J. Lubbock
