Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it destination full of hope.

When I love somebody, I like him to be around; I like him to take me out to dinner; I like to look at the sunset with him. But if not, I love him and I hope he's looking at the same sun I am. Loving someone liberates the lover as well as the beloved. And that kind of love comes with age.

Don't allow anyone to narrow your life down to a mean little tunnel. All the genius belongs to you, all the books in all the libraries. The poet is accessible, the poet is for everyone.

I know that you that you may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. If you accept that you have been defeated, you give power to the force that is trying to defeat you.

I deal very little in facts, facts can obscure the truth, you can tell so many facts you never get to the truth, you can tell the places where, the people who, the times when, the reasons why, and never get to the human truth which is love and pain and loss and triumph.

Hate is as virulent as poison and so I will not indulge it.

There is no place where God is not. If you are in prison, in a brutal relationship or lonely, God is there.
