Hi there!  here is a challenge for anyone interested.  Take a favourite quote giving full credit to the author (if known) and use those couple of lines in a poem.

eg..

The quote The greatest warrior is one that does not need to fight.  AUTHOR UNKNOWN

We are all warriors in our own way,
Fighting our own raging battles every day,
The wisest among us already know,
It's how we live as well as what we say.

The greatest warrior is one that does not need to fight,
With heart and mind he can make amends,
With love in his heart,
Tis only a positive outlook he sends.

Sorry this was off the top of my head, but if you get the idea and want to have a go, please do so.

Isis

*Enlightenment is within all things*

Great challenge idea. Isis I will give it a shot, though I have three ideas to work through and my muse just does not want to play  

Your quote sounds very Taoist.

"Build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life". Terry Pratchett

What an excellent idea, Isis. I have a few written but they need a bit of improvement. My muse finally came back to have a bit of fun with me for the night so they should be up soon.

Just because I hear voices doesn't mean I'm crazy...SHUT UP IN THERE!!!
