Inspiration for the Day, January 9, 2011: 

"This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whomever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond."

- Guest House, by Rumi

I really like this one. Thanks for continuing to post all these!
I have a ton of them. Unfortunately, many of them wait to be typed up and are sitting in a Leaning Tower of Pisa-like pile at the command center. I hope someday to be caught up enough to input them soon after acquiring them instead of adding to the paper pile.
