Morning Quotes

“One human life is deeper than the ocean. 
Strange fishes and sea-monsters 
and mighty plants live 
in the rock-bed of our spirits. 
The whole of human history 
is an undiscovered continent 
deep in our souls. There are dolphins, 
plants that dream, magic birds inside us. 
The sky is inside us. The earth is in us.”
     ~ Ben Okri

“We can redream this world 
and make the dream come real. 
Human beings are gods 
hidden from themselves. ”
     ~ Ben Okri

A Way of Being Free ~ Ben Okri

“What hope is there for individual reality or authenticity when the forces of violence and orthodoxy, the earthly powers of guns and bombs, and manipulated public opinion make it impossible for us to be authentic and fulfilled human beings?

The only hope is in the creation of alternative values, alternative realities. The only hope is in daring to re-dream one's place in the world - a beautiful act of imagination, and a sustained act of self becoming. Which is to say that in some way or another we breach and confound the accepted frontiers of things.”

Every one of us is, 
in the cosmic perspective, precious. 
If a human disagrees with you, so be it. 
In a hundred billion galaxies, 
you will not find another.
     ~adapted, Carl Sagan

The power of love 
is like the waves in the sea, 
gentle and good, 
endless and stronger 
than the sky and earth,
and everything in between.
     ~adapted, Veronica Rossi
