You must never stop…

” You must never stop being whimsical.

And you must not, ever,

give anyone else the responsibility for your life.”

Mary Oliver

 

“Nunca dejes de ser excéntrico.

Y nunca, jamás,

le entregues a otro la responsabilidad por tu vida.”

Mary Oliver

There are ways in…

There are ways in,

journeys to the centre of a life,

through time,

through air, matter, dream

and thought.

The ways in

are not always mapped or charted,

but sometimes being lost,

if there is such a thing,

is the sweetest place to be.

Linda Hogan

Siempre hay caminos,

viajes al centro de la vida,

através del tiempo,

através del aire, la materia, los sueños

y pensamientos.

Estos caminos

no siempre están en un mapa o catalogados;

pero a veces, estar perdido,

si es que existe tal cosa,

es el mejor lugar para estar.

Linda Hogan

If he is not edified…

“When Abba Pambo was asked to say a few words to the very important Bishop of Alexandria, who was visiting some of the Desert Fathers, the elder replied: “If he is not edified by my silence, there is no hope that he will be edified by my words.”

 

“Cuando se le pidió a Abba Pambo que diga algunas palabras ante el Obispo de Alejandría, quien se encontraba visitando a algunos Padres del Desierto, el anciano respondió: “Si el no se instruye con mi silencio, no hay esperanzas de que sea instruído con mis palabras.”
