Why stand we here trembling around

Calling on God for help, and not ourselves,

in whom God dwells,

stretching a hand to save the falling man?

–William Blake

Whoever is kind to the creatures of God is kind to himself. 

– Muhammad

She did not talk to people as if they were strange hard shells

She had to crack open to get inside. She talked as if she

Were already in the shell. In their very shell.

– Martina Bonner
