"Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing."
"Your body is a harp of your soul. And it is yours to bring forth sweet music from it or confused sounds."
"The breath of life is the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind."
"You are good when you are fully awake in your speech."
"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
"Love possesses not nor would it be possessed. For love is sufficient unto love."
"Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself."
