Big Sea, Small Me


Big Sea, Small Me

I look at the sea
a vast expanse of water
and realise how small I am.

Not even a drop,
I am nothing.

Yet, it is me
so I am everything.

Oh! But how tiny I am,
how deep and never-ending it seems.
All I can do is gaze at it.

It frightens me,
and lures me.

I could drown in it,
float around like a piece of driftwood,
or navigate it to discover new horizons.

But, if I can do that,
does it not mean Read more of this blog post »

South African Boo...: Know Your Author 23 73 Oct 30, 2014 03:49AM  
John Lennon
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
John Lennon

Winston S. Churchill
“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”
Winston S. Churchill

Frank McCourt
“You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace.”
Frank McCourt, Angela's Ashes

Ted Hughes
“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.”
Ted Hughes, Letters of Ted Hughes

J.K. Rowling
“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
