"Behind all art is an element of desire. … Love of life, of existence, love of another human being, love of human beings is in some way behind all art — even the most angry, even the darkest, even the most grief-stricken, and even the most embittered art has that element somewhere behind it. Because how could you be so despairing, so embittered, if you had not had something you loved that you lost?"
— I don’t know, but its good, right?
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Rainer Maria Rilke in Rilke’s Book of Hours
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
Martin Luther King Jr.
I couldn’t define the feeling I had while watching the news coverage. Thanking God for the wisdom of MLK Jr .
"I’ve found that when love is difficult, it most reflects what love actually is. When we choose the road less traveled, and act in love even when we don’t feel like it, things change, which means the world can change. Will you change the world with us?"
Pastor Matt Hammett- Flood Church San Diego
