Jesus said, “The man old in days will not hesitate to ask a
small child seven days old about the place of life, and he will
live. For many who are first will become last, and they will
become one and the same.”

Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which
is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”

His disciples questioned Him and said to Him, “Do you want
us to fast? How shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What diet
shall we observe?”

Jesus said, “Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate,
for all things are plain in the sight of Heaven. For nothing
hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain
without being uncovered.”

The Gospel of Thomas


8

The highest excellence is like (that of) water. The excellence
of water appears in its benefiting all things, and in its occupying, without striving (to the contrary), the low place which all men dislike. Hence (its way) is near to (that of) the Tao.

Tao Te Ching


How excellent the heaven,
When earth cannot be had;
How hospitable, then, the face
Of our old neighbor, God!

Emily Dickinson
