William O. Cushing Quotes

"It was more beau­ti­ful than words can tell, and my heart seemed to be there." ~William O. Crushing, 1875

“One day ... I was reach­ing up for a bless­ing when suddenly there came down up­on my heart a vi­sion of the heav­en­ly count­ry. I seemed to look down up­on a ri­ver that like a mighty tide rolled be­neath me. Across, on the other side of this ri­ver, I saw an en­chant­ed land; its hills and val­leys were sleep­ing in a heav­en­ly calm. It was more beau­ti­ful than words can tell, and my heart seemed to be there. As I gazed up­on the scene, there came to my lips the words, ‘Beau­ti­ful val­ley of Eden.’ The vi­sion re­mained un­til I had writ­ten down the hymn; then it grad­u­al­ly fad­ed from my sight. But I want to say that the beau­ty of the hymn is large­ly due to Mr. Sher­win, who, by his rich mel­o­dy, has reached a deep­er chord than any mere words could ev­er have reached.” ~William O. Cushing, Author of Beautiful Valley of Eden, 1875

Sophie Scholl Quotes


"If you don't make any noise, the bogeyman won't find you. But it's all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn." ~Sophie Scholl

"Somebody, after all, had to make a start. What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just don't dare express themselves as we did." ~Sophie School, Student Leader and Organiser of White Rose, Anti-Nazi Movement.)

"How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause. Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?" ~Sophie Scholl (1921-1943), (on her final statement at her execution)

"Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won't take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don't like to make waves-or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honor, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It's the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you'll keep it under control." ~Sophie Scholl

You may be broken; you may be torn;
You may feel this is how you were born.

Know the angels wipe away your tears;
Begin again; release your fears.

Fill my soul with divine light, so all darkness will simply cease.

Smile if just for a moment;
let the angels dry your tears.

let your soul return to bliss.

~Robert Clancy

LOVE is…
The vastness that exists between every beat of your precious heart;
The endless oceans flowing behind your beautiful eyes;
The heavens reigning down upon your delicate soul;
The grace bestowed upon your wonderful life.

~Robert Clancy


Call upon forgiveness to release your precious soul;

Forgiving allows for living; it makes the Universe whole.
Grace will light your way; there’s only one path that’s true;

It’s the one that leads to love, the one with the heavenly views.

You may have shared your heart; you may have some regrets;

But the greatest plan for your soul hasn’t even happened yet.
Stay true to who you are; don’t give up on life’s fight.

It will all be worth it in the end; keep walking the path of light.
~Robert Clancy


A prayer for the faithful;
a prayer for those who see;
Help those who are still blind
to the divine grace-filled seas.

Dance upon the sands of time;
let that ocean caress your feet.
Allow your love become the waves
that wash over those you meet.

Reach your hands to heavens in gratitude;
share your loving heart.
Listen for the angels to rejoice;
make kindness the place you start.

~Robert Clancy


Loving forgiveness is the place to start,
When your heart is shattered or broken apart.

Grief, sorrow, darkness, despair—
Know you’re held; all of heaven cares.

You might be at rock bottom; you may have given in;
The angels have called out—your soul is worth saving.

Hold on for the sunrise, wait for that light to caress your face,
The angels have arrived to wrap you with grace.

~Robert Clancy


You are born to be a child of the infinite light;

Your wings may be hidden, but you can always take flight.
Your smile a radiant gift, from the angels they say;
Bestow your divine beauty to brighten another’s day.
Allow your compassion to give your wings their lift;
Know the love in your heart is God’s great gift.

~Robert Clancy

"Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the ploughshare of self-examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guest, an altar for the unknown God." ~Henri Frederic Amiel

"Let mystery have its place in you;
do not be always turning up your whole soil with the ploughshare of self-examination,
but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring,
and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird;
keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God.
Then if a bird sing among your branches, do not be too eager to tame it.
If you are conscious of something new—
thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being—
do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it;
let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten,
hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness."
~Henri Frederic Amiel

"Walked for half an hour in the garden.  A fine rain was falling, and the landscape was that of autumn.  The sky was hung with various shades of gray, and mists hovered about the distant mountains - a melancholy nature.  The leaves were falling on all sides like the last illusions of youth under the tears of irremediable grief.  A brood of chattering birds were chasing each other through the shrubberies, and playing games among the branches, like a knot of hiding schoolboys.  Every landscape is, as it were, a state of the soul, and whoever penetrates into both is astonished to find how much likeness there is in each detail." ~Henri Frederic Amiel H

Quotes on CULTURE

"Cultivate money and you grow rich. Cultivate mind and you raise culture." ~Anon

"Culture is properly described as the love of perfection; it is a study of perfection." ~Matthew Arnold

“Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers.

"Our culture encourages us to plan every moment and fill our schedules with one activity and obligation after the next, with no time to just be. But the human body and mind require downtime to rejuvenate.

"A culture of music education starts in a school gradually. It comes, always, from a teacher. It doesn't come because you say, "it has to be there because music is good." If you don't have a good teacher, you don't have anything, it doesn't matter whether it's music, maths, English, whatever it is. If you have a good teacher, that will happen. The big difference with music is people don't see it as essential." ~Richard Gill,
on ABC RN's 'What Keeps Me Awake'

“Nature is busy creating absolutely unique individuals, whereas culture has invented a single mold to which all must conform. It is grotesque." ~U.G. Krishnamurti

William Matthews - joy of life

"A great deal of the joy of life consists in doing perfectly, or at least to the best of one’s ability, everything which one attempts to do. There is a sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in all its parts-which the superficial man, who leaves his work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition can never know. It is this conscientious completeness which turns work into art. The smallest thing, well done, becomes artistic." ~William Matthews

Saint Patrick - desire

"I am imperfect in many things, nevertheless I want my brethren and kinsfolk to know my nature so that they may be able to perceive my soul's desire.” ~Saint Patrick

And you don’t need to feel guilty or apologize or try to justify needing space. You just do what you need to do to take care of yourself, and that’s it. No explanation needed.” ~Dele Olanubi

"Wounds don't heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to. It takes time for wounds to fade into scars. It takes time for the process of healing to take place. Give yourself that time. Give yourself that grace. Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart. You deserve to heal." ~Dele Olanubi

Kay Conner - renewal


"Let us not overlook that there are people who are unable to return love for whatever reason. If one does not realize or understand this, then the giving of love may feel like it is being repaid with heartache and pain. Sometimes in the real world, things do not happen as we would wish. At times like these, it is very important to take time for our self and our spiritual, emotional and physical renewal. Namaste." ~Kay Conner

Allan G. Johnson - patriarchal order

“For women, getting angry is socially unacceptable, even when the anger is over violence, discrimination, misogyny, and other forms of oppression. Anger is unacceptable because angry women are women in touch with their passion and power, especially in relation to men, which threatens the entire patriarchal order. It’s unacceptable because it forces men to confront the reality of male privilege and women’s oppression and their involvement in it, even if only as passive beneficiaries. Women’s anger challenges men to acknowledge attempts to trivialize oppression with “I was only kidding." And women’s anger is unacceptable to men who look to women to take care of them, to prop up their need to feel in control, and to support them in their competition with other men. When women are less than gracious and good-humored about their own oppression, men often feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, at a loss, and therefore vulnerable." ~Allan G. Johnson

In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” ~James Madison

"It will be of little avail to the people, if the law is so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood." ~James Madison, the Father of the American Constitution

"The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty." ~
James Madison

"The circulation of confidence is better than the circulation of money." ~James Madison
