you loved me once in a paragraph."

Patience


"When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and anxiety;
If I sit in my own place of patience,
What I need flows to me, and without any pain.
From this I understand that what I want also wants me,
Is looking for me and attracting me..."

— Rumi

Benevolence


And still, after all this time
The sun never says to the earth
"You owe me"
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights up the whole sky."

— Daniel Ladinsky, American Sufi Poet (The Gift: Poems by Hafez the Great Sufi Master)

Endeavour


"It's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who at the best knows in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

— Theodore Roosevelt
