The mystery of creation is like the darkness of night--it is great.
Delusions of knowledge are like the fog of the morning.
The mind, sharp but not broad, sticks at every point but does not move.
The perfect decks itself in beauty for the love of the Imperfect.2017-11-26 21:43:28 回应
Do not seat your love upon a precipice because it is high.
The light that plays, like a naked child, among the green leaves
happily knows not that man can lie.
O Beauty, find thyself in love, not in the flattery of thy mirror.2017-11-26 21:42:46 回应
I sit at my window this morning where the world like a passer-by stops
for a moment, nods to me and goes.
What you are you do not see, what you see is your shadow.
Never be afraid of the moments--thus sings the voice of the everlasting.2017-11-26 21:41:52 回应
Moon, for what do you wait
To salute the sun for whom I must make way.
The sun goes to cross the Western sea, leaving its last salutation to the East.

The trees, like the longings of the earth, stand a-tiptoe to peep at the heaven.
Shadow, with her veil drawn, follows Light in secret meekness,with her silent steps of love.
The stars are not afraid to appear like fireflies.
While the glass lamp rebukes the earthen for calling it cousin the moon rises, and the glass lamp, with a bland smile, calls her,
---My dear, dear sister.
Like the meeting of the seagulls and the waves we meet and come near.
The seagulls fly off, the waves roll away and we depart.2017-11-27 22:44:53 回应
You idol is shattered in the dust to prove that God's dust is greater than your idol.
God says to man, I heal you therefore I hurt, love you therefore punish.2017-11-27 22:54:20 回应
They throw their shadows before them who carry their lantern on their back.
If you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars2017-11-28 21:39:27 回应
