Quote 30 November

lilosophieNovember 30, 2011

Be like the sun for grace and mercy.

Be like the night to cover others faults.

Be like running water for generosity.

Be like death for rage and anger.

Be like earth for modesty.

Appear as you are. Be as you appear.

Rumi

Silence is the language of god, all else is poor translation.

Thanks Lilo. What a great quote to come back to.
It's been and is a bit crazy here and I try to catch up with a week, if my computer holds up. When 3 "computer experts" try to fix a laptop they messed up, you end up with a laptop which needs to connected through the modem, moved around the house and and can be used only if you either move furniture or sit on the floor. Of course the experts are gone (thank goodness).

Experts like yours are the sort to be avoided at any cost, hope you get things straightened out. I often worry that my cats may mess up my computer, but I don't think they could do too bad a job, as they don't know anything about it. They can kdnayqbswjdo do that when running across the keyboard :>)
Glad you enjoyed the quote.

Thanks for the quote,lilo. While reading it, I got uneasy,and I thought that I recognized the poem and the author. I googled it and sure enough, it was from an Iranian (Persian) author.
To me , the Persians are between God (as the poem mentioned), and perhaps building a nuke.
What the quote says to me, is to be quiet.
"Silence is the language of god, all else is poor translation."

But I did not like your response, westgardener. If you think that poem says, anywhere, that "The Persians are between God," you are skilled at not only reading between the lines, but filling them in with what you'd like to see there.
