Do not love half lovers.
Do not entertain half friends.
Do not indulge in works of the half talented.
Do not live half a life and do not die a half death.

If you choose silence, then be silent.
When you speak, do so until you are finished.
Do not silence yourself to say something
And do not speak to be silent.
If you accept, then express it bluntly,
Do not mask it.
If you refuse, then be clear about it
for an ambiguous refusal
is but a weak acceptance.

Do not accept half a solution.
Do not believe half truths.
Do not dream half a dream.
Do not fantasize about half hopes.

Half a drink will not quench your thirst,
Half a meal will not satiate your hunger.
Half the way will get you no where,
Half an idea will bear you no results.

Your other half is not the one you love.
It is you in another time
yet in the same space;
It is you when you are not.

Half a life is a life you didn’t live,
A word you have not said,
A smile you postponed,
A love you have not had,
A friendship you did not know.

To reach and not arrive,
Work and not work,
Attend only to be absent.
What makes you a stranger to them
closest to you and they strangers to you?

The half is a mere moment of inability
but you are able for you are not half a being.
You are a whole that exists
to live a life not half a life.

The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master.

You often say,
“I would give, but only to the deserving.”
The trees in your orchard say not so,
nor the flocks in your pasture.
They give so that they may live,
for to withhold is to perish.

I have found both freedom
and safety
in my madness;

the freedom of loneliness

and the safety
from being understood,

for those who understand us
enslave something in us.

I have learned silence from the talkative,
tolerance from the intolerant
and kindness from the unkind.
I should not be ungrateful to those teachers.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
the philosophy which does not laugh
and the greatness which does not bow before children.

In the depths of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

We choose our joys and sorrows
long before we experience them.

Your children are not your children! They come through you ... but not from you! You may give them your love ... but not your thoughts!

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give

I say that even as the holly and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each of you , so the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.
