Genius is eternal patience. Michelangelo (1475)

Date added: 06/19/2017

The greater danger
for most of us
is not that our aim is
too high
and we miss it,
but that it is too low
and we reach it.
Michelangelo (1475)

My unassisted heart is barren clay,
That of its native self can nothing feed;

Of Good and pious works Thou art the seed,
That quickens only where Thou sayest it may;

Unless Thou show to us Thine own true way
No man can find it; Father! Thou must lead.
Michelangelo (1475)

"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "

- Lao Tse
