I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope. For hope would be hope for the wrong thing. T. S. Eliot (1888)

Date added: 01/14/2019

At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
T. S. Eliot (1888)

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And to know that place for the first time.

"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! "

- Thomas Merton
