Whatever is, and is not ashamed to be, is good.
Whatever is your present experience, you can recognize the spaciousness that allows it to be. You are this spaciousness, this awareness, this love. Deeper love and more spacious awareness is the best lesson you can get from any experience.
Whatever is worthy to be loved for anything is worthy of preservation. A wise and dispassionate legislator, if any such should ever arise among men, will not condemn to death him who has done or is likely to do more service than injury to society. Blocks and gibbets are the nearest objects with legislators, and their business is never with hopes or with virtues.
Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.
Whatever is well said by another, is mine.
Whatever is valuable in painting is precisely what one is incapable of talking about.
Whatever is unnamed, undepicted in images, whatever is omitted from biography, censored in collections of letters, whatever is misnamed as something else, made difficult-to-come-by, whatever is buried in the memory by the collapse of meaning under an inadequate or lying language -- this will become, not merely unspoken, but unspeakable.
Whatever is unlike Christ in conduct, speech, or disposition grieves the Spirit of grace.
Whatever is underneath all the drag, it actually doesn't really matter. It kind of just matters, are you a great entertainer? And are you nice to work with? Are you good at your job?
Whatever is truly alive must die. Look at the flowers; only plastic flowers never die.
Whatever is spoken of acquires a certain existence.
