Only When Empty

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The wind speaks not more sweetly to the giant oaks than to the least of all the blades of grass and he alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving."

Kahlil Gibran

"Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater." But I say unto you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed. Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy. Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced."

Kahlil Gibran
