In the world, what counts more than talent, what counts more than energy or concentration or commitment or anything else, is kindness. The more in the world you encounter kindness and cheerfulness, the better the world always is. All the big words, virtue, justice, truth, are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness.

Introducing the King of the San Diego Zoo, the regal M’bari.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

—Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Road to Daybreak: A Spiritual Journey

You only need one man to love you. But him to love you free like a wildfire, crazy like the moon, always like tomorrow, sudden like an inhale and overcoming like the tides. Only one man and all of this.
