#1079 Imperishable quiet

Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries.

In this place of light: he dares to live
Who stops being a bird, yet beats his wings
Against the immense immeasurable emptiness of things.

A mind too active is no mind at all.

I long for the imperishable quiet at the heart
of form.

Quotes by Theodore Roethke

- What mystery have you experienced through vulnerability?
- How hopeful and persistent are you in the midst of the emptiness?
- When have you enjoyed the beauty of form?
