emily dickinson and charles bukowski walk into a bar….

September 15, 2009

sometimes other people hit the nail on the head in a way I just cant.  here are a few great quotes and poems that can maybe serve as a reminder of the importance of doing the little things we can to make the lives around us better. The first is an Emily Dickinson poem, the second is Charles Bukowski.  A match made in heaven!?

If I can stop one heart from breaking by Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

“You begin saving the world by saving one person at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.” Charles Bukowski

love.
