I want to know the joy of how you whisper “more.”

“Love so needs to love that it will endure almost anything, even abuse, just to flicker for a moment. But the sky’s mouth is kind, its song will never hurt you, for I sing those words.”
“Be certain that in the religion of Love there are no believers and unbelievers. LOVE embraces all.”
“Make your last journey from this strange world, soar for the heights,where there is no more separation of you and your home. God has created your wings not to be dormant, as long as you are alive you must try more and more to use your wings to show you’re alive”
