I Believe In Miracles

in General,Monthly Post,Poetry

I don’t believe in evolution
or creationism
or other isms on how we came to be
even the next new theory is predictably
one more among many plausible stories
trying to tame the inexplicable.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. ~ Pablo Neruda

The only choice we have as we mature is how we inhabit our vulnerability, how we become larger and more courageous and more compassionate through our intimacy with disappearance. ~ David Whyte

The Duty Of The Artist

Post image for The Duty Of The Artist

by Viktoria Vidali on January 26, 2016

in Art,Quotations

I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet’s voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail. ~ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, 1950.

in General

High school and family reunions, alumni gatherings, birthdays, anniversaries, cultural holidays, or the chance meeting with an old friend – such are life events in which we retell stories and relive experiences we have in common. On these social occasions it seems second nature to compare what we remember with what others remember about our shared past.

I Shall Not Live In Vain

Post image for I Shall Not Live In Vain

by Viktoria Vidali on May 9, 2014

in Quotations

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

~ Emily Dickinson

Practice Of Compassion

Post image for Practice Of Compassion

by Viktoria Vidali on October 22, 2013

in Quotations

Once we have a firm practice of compassion our state of mind becomes stronger which leads to inner peace, giving rise to self-confidence, which reduces fear. This makes for constructive members of the community. Self-centeredness on the other hand leads to distance, suspicion, mistrust and loneliness, with unhappiness as the result.
