Pleasure By Khalil Gibran

And now you ask in your heart, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?"
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bees to gather honey from the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For the bee a flower is a fountain of life
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
to both the bee and the flower, the giving and the receiving of
pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

People, be in your pleasures
like the flowers and the bee.

  2. and Gibran is worth quoting
    over and over again!

  3. tough ask..
    tougher ask..

  4. The pleasure is equally good; following as well as posting blogs, like yours!
