A Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier on belief, darkness, death, earth, faith, fear, force, goals, god, heart, hope, joy, justice, life, listening, mercy, nature, providence, purpose, songs, soul, spirit, time, trust, and universe

I pray for faith, I long to trust; I listen with my heart, and hear A Voice without a sound: "Be just, Be true, be merciful, revere The Word within thee: God is near! "A light to sky and earth unknown Pales all their lights: a mightier force Than theirs the powers of Nature own, And, to its goal as at its source, His Spirit moves the Universe. "Believe and trust. Through stars and suns, Through life and death, through soul and sense, His wise, paternal purpose runs; The darkness of His providence Is star-lit with benign intents." O joy supreme! I know the Voice Like none beside on earth or sea; Yea, more, O soul of mine, rejoice, By all that He requires of me, I know what God himself must be. . . . I fear no more. The clouded face Of Nature smiles; through all her things Of time and space and sense I trace The moving of the Spirit's wings, And hear the song of hope she sings.

A Quote by John Lubbock on day, idleness, lies, listening, rest, time, and water

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.

A Quote by John Cage on culture, entertainment, listening, and music

It is better to make a piece of music than to perform one, better to perform one than to listen to one, better to listen to one than to misuse it as a means of distraction, entertainment, or acquisition of "culture."

Relating to another on an intimate level means really listening with all one's senses. Only in this way can one know the other person as he is.
