Even Small Flowers Brighten up the Darkness

“Whatever you do, you need courage.

No matter which course you decide on, there is always someone telling you that you are wrong.

Difficulties always arise that tempt you to believe that your critics are right.

Mapping a course of action and following it to the end requires something of the same courage that a soldier needs.

Peace has its victories, but it takes courageous men and women to win them. “

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their endings.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien

  1. Very thoughtful and topical quotes and comments as flowers brighten our lives this Spring but for many there is just fear and destruction still. We need some courageous peace makers now.

    • Yes, we do need courageous insightful founders of peace.
      I’ve seen hardened war correspondents struggle with tears in their meeting with the brave, indomitable civilian women of Ukraine.
      Powerlessness and frustration over gross senseless violence, and for what?
      Let us hope and work on a brighter future ❤
      All the best,
