BEAUTIFUL WORDS

Beautiful words.

We may look for more truth, but we know already- the answer is very simple!

Corinthians (old testament) 

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing.

Love suffers long, and is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,

Does not behave itself unseemly, seek not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;

Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, believes all things, hopes for all things, endures all things.

Love never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Shakespeare’s Hamlet

Polonius: 
”This above all: to thine own self be true,
 And it must follow, as the night the day, 
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream

Puck:  If we shadows have offended,


Think but this, and all is mended,


That you have but slumber’d here


While these visions did appear.

And this weak and idle theme,


No more yielding but a dream.”
