– Wendell Berry, “Woods”
Thou that hast given so much to me
give me one thing more, a grateful heart:
not thankful when it pleaseth me,
as if Thy blessings had spare days,
but such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
– George Herbert
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
– William Blake, “Auguries of Innocence”
Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
– Desmond Tutu
