Quote of the Week 37 - Wind, Water, Stone
Wind, Water, Stone
BY OCTAVIO PAZ
Water hollows stone,
wind scatters water,
stone stops the wind.
Water, wind, stone.
Wind carves stone,
stone's a cup of water,
water escapes and is wind.
Stone, wind, water.
Wind sings in its whirling,
water murmurs going by,
unmoving stone keeps still.
Wind, water, stone.
Each is another and no other:
crossing and vanishing
through their empty names:
water, stone, wind.

Quotes of the Week 69 - From Our Youth
"That’s strange. God is invisible. How could there be an image of God? Maybe it’s more like the other way around, God is in the image of human beings. Only it couldn’t be just one human being, it would have to be lots. And they would all be different from each other. Each one would be like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle. Then you would have to fit all the pieces together. Then they would be a community, and a community is more like God."
-- from a conversation between Rabbi Arthur Waskow and his seven-year-old granddaughter, Yonit Slater
"If you don’t know how to fix it, don’t break it."
"What you do makes me cry at night."
--from a speech by Severn Suzuki, a 12-year-old girl from Vancouver, BC addressing a UN conference on the environment
