Burning Bushes

Random quotes I want to keep somewhere....

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.


-- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

She said she cried every day.
Not because she was sad,
But because everything was so beautiful
And life was so short.


-- Seen on a greeting card.
