Reflections. Butterfly


"Wake, butterfly -
It’s late, we’ve miles
To go together."

- Matsuo Basho

"How many of us have responded to early damage
by growing more thickly, by making more flowers
than we might otherwise have done?"

- Patricia Monaghan

"The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough..."

- Rabindranath Tagore

"What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. When we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen."

- Henry Thoreau

"Just as the seed must grow beneath the ground establishing firm roots to uphold its growth, so our inner growth must be well rooted and nourished, until it is ready to be harvested."

- Patricia Monaghan

"To foster the child within is to foster joy... "

- Eva Figes

Reflections. Georgia O'Keefe

"Now I become myself. It’s taken
Time, many years and places;
I have been dissolved and shaken,
Worn other people’s faces, run madly…
Now to stand stilll, to be here,
Feel my own weight and density!
All fuses now, falls into place,
Gathered into one intense
Gesture of growing."

- May Sarton

"Only connect! Live in fragments no longer... "

- E M Forster

"In the shadow is the gold"

- C G Jung

"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. And try to love the questions themselves."

- Rainer Maria Rilke

"In order to make a choice, you need the power to see there is one."

- Gloria Steinem

"The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free."

"It is never too late to be what you might have been."

- George Eliot

"Therapists must convey to clients that their paramount task is to build a relationship together that will itself become the agent of change."

- Irvin D. Yalom
