The benevolence of the Creative Impulse is inexpressible.
We cannot know this benevolence, while accepting that Benevolence knows us better than we know ourselves.
Love cannot bear that even one soul be denied its place in Paradise.
In strange and uncertain times, sometimes a reasonable person might despair.
But Hope is unreasonable, and Love is greater even than this.
Music is our friend, if only we might listen; if only we can listen.
The poverty of our nature is no limit to our aspiration.
Although I stumble and fall, each time I will rise again.
Not even death can end the process of our becoming.
