"every morning"

"Every morning
I shall concern myself anew about the boundary
Between the love-deed-Yes and the power-deed-No
And pressing forward honor reality.
We cannot avoid
Using power,
Cannot escape the compulsion
To afflict the world,
So let us, cautious in diction
And mighty in contradiction,
Love powerfully."

― Martin Buber, Power and Love (1926)


  1. hello Tatiana.
    beautiful shots.I ahave been admiring the trees around here sooooooo much.Iguess because they are appearing after the white snow.
    yes they appear like powerful guardians of the deep.

    I walk by this hair salon a lot and it makes me smile they have brown paper bags in the window with philosophical advice given on each.haha. and one says but I have heard it before that everything can become the opposite of what it is.
    have a beautiful day.

  2. thank you very much, crederae! "guardians of the deep," yes, how thoughtful!! thank you
