Inspirational Quotes


“Don’t talk unless you can improve the silence.”  ― Jorge Luis Borges


I love not man the less …


Lord Byron (1788 – 1824)

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is a society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more…”

― George Gordon Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

“For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point.”


For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point… ~ mtg 

by Marites Avisado-Responte

The unrehearsed prayer

 muttered by the heart

that forms the words 
and the mouth

that makes it heard

The burning lightning strikes at a distant horizon

sparks the deserted way…

Its neon glow shoots the stars up

The howling wind kisses

The snow-draped meadows

Where the butterfly pauses and listens

The sluggish dew gracefully slips

along the ribs of a leaf

stops at its tip, clinging

tempting to drop…

The migrant bird perching

the bare tree, searching

for pair tweeting and singing …

The snowflakes tenderly falls

along the weathered quay

where waves are tamed and free

The listless swaying

of the pine leaves stirs

the spiritless white morn

in the snowy moor

The wishing gush of the streams

chants the tenderest lullaby amidst

the most challenging trek and trail

The brave moon in December

gracefully shows up its splendor

against the web of clouds

and unabated mists  …

The slumber is perfected beneath

the cozy comforter where sighs

of weariness are forgotten

in its heavenly hug…

If silence is broken by my own chatter

all alone I am left not appreciating

the noiseless art and beauty that

tap my noisy heart…
