Kia our lovely cat (2008)
Fue uno de esos días de marzo cuando el sol brilla y el viento sopla frío:
cuando es verano en la luz e invierno en la sombra “.
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
“La primavera hace su propia declaración,
tan fuerte y clara que el jardinero parece
ser sólo uno de sus instrumentos,no el compositor”.
“Spring makes its own statement,
so loud and clear that the gardener seems
to be only one of his instruments, not the composer.”
“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.”
” May there be peace in the North;
May there be peace in the South;
May there be peace in the West;
May there be peace in the east;
May there be peace throughout the whole world.”
Very little is needed to make a happy life;
it is all within yourself,
in your way of thinking.
Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Se necesita muy poco para hacer una vida feliz;
esta todo dentro de ti mismo,
en tu forma de pensar.
Enséñanos a contar bien nuestros días,
para que nuestro corazón adquiera sabiduría.
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” ― J.M. Barrie
To have faith is to have wings
O birds, your perfect virtues bring, Your song, your forms, your rhythmic flight, Your manners for your heart’s delight, Nestle in hedge, or barn, or roof,Here weave your chamber weather-proof, Forgive our harms, and condescend to man, as to a lubber friend, And, generous, teach his awkward race courage, and probity, and grace!
RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Treasure the love you receive above all.
It will survive long after your good health has vanished.
Love is always bestowed as a gift
– freely, willingly and without expectation.
We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.
Love always creates, it never destroys.
In this lies man’s only promise.
Animals are like little angels sent to earth to teach us how to love.
They don’t get angry or play silly games.
They are always there for us.
