“Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper.”

Francis Bacon

Believe me, you will find more lessons in the woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you what you cannot learn from masters.

It is commonly said: What the eye doesn’t see, the heart doesn’t grieve.

“Blessed,” he says, “are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God” (Mt 5:9). Consider carefully that it is not the people who call for peace but those who make peace who are commended. For there are those who talk but do nothing (Mt 23:3). For just as it is not the hearers of the law but the doers who are righteous (Rom 2:13), so it is not those who preach peace but the authors of peace who are blessed.”

Bernard of Clairvaux
