“You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship. Money is not a substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness.” ~ Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie


                   

Late Prayer

Tenderness does not choose its own uses.
It goes out to everything equally,
circling rabbit and hawk.
Look:  in the iron bucket,
a single soul, a single ruby —
all the heavens and hells.
They rattle in the heart and make one sound.

~ Jane Hirshfield
