As A New Year Approaches

 “Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” 

~ Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī ~

“Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.”

~ J.R.R. Tolkien ~

“Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.”

~ Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī ~
