Dona nobis pacem

Dona nobis pacem (Latin) ~ Give us peace

Speranta moare ultima (Romanian) ~ Hope dies last.

(I sing these to the waves and the wind every morning)

“With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair, 

a stone of hope.” ~ M.L. King

(some say hope is futile; some doctors say it is life-saving; some never know it; some never let it go)

“This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression…

some momentary awareness comes

as an unexpected visitor.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent as a guide.”

~from Guest House by RUMI
