Perhaps I want everything
the darkness that comes with every infinite fall
and the shivering blaze of every step up.
So many live on and want nothing
And are raised to the rank of prince
By the slippery ease of their light judgments
But what you love to see are faces
that do work and feel thirst.
You love most of all those who need you
as they need a crowbar or a hoe.
You have not grown old, and it is not too late
To dive into your increasing depths
where life calmly gives out its own secret.
The Book of Hours by Rainer Maria Rilke
You won’t find glory at the center of safety, but at its edge. You won’t find love at a place where you are covered, but in the space where you are naked.
You gotta take some risks. You have to not only pick up the dice, but roll ’em. So go ahead, take the gamble.
You have nothing to lose except the chance to win.
Life is not long enough to spend it on the sidelines. And you will not have to think but a second to know exactly why you received this message today.
– Neale Donald Walsh
