Each time you wipe off the machine or weights you’re using at the gym, it’s an act of love, paying it forward, toward the next user. Good for you.
You are sweet, O Love, dear Love,
You are soft as the nesting dove.
Come to my heart and bring it to rest
As the bird flies home to its welcome nest.
Come when my heart is full of grief
Or when my heart is merry;
Come with the falling of the leaf
Or with the redd’ning cherry.
Come when the year’s first blossom blows,
Come when the summer gleams and glows,
Come with the winter’s drifting snows,
And you are welcome, welcome.
If we could read the secret history of our enemies we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“Here’s a sigh to those who love me
And a smile to those who hate;
And whatever sky’s above me,
Here’s a heart for every fate.”
I’ll lift you and you lift me, and we’ll both ascend together. John Greenleaf Whitter
Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.
– Langston Hughes
Only love can be divided endlessly and still not diminish. Anne Morrow Lindbergh
