Inspiration from the Past

Post by Arnaya » Thu Sep 28, 2017 5:03 pm

In my studies, I've come across many notes from many different dreamers. In order to keep them alive, I'll be sharing some of those here once in a while.

This first one is courtesy of the Archived lore by a dreamer named Calysto:

Leadership and Power

As I contemplate in Threshold Pits….
As I look again on the Hands of friends…
In the Study of Renrut Nek….
One thought bothering me to no end…
“Leadership and Power are so easy to abuse”
“The sharp tongue flows more often than kindness”…
“And Arts and Positions so easy to misuse…”
But I looked deeply into the Mural and took a rest
And the remembrance of a Dreamwight came gently into my mind..Spinning my thoughts Round and Round
How Theofanes both believed and lived as a dreamer…
[“That only through Peace, could the true path of concordance in the City be found”] 1
“Should this not be the goal of all Dreamers”
“Should not Forgiveness be first in each Heart”
And the Voice of Peace penetrated the very walls of the Dream
“Time and Space will not keep true Friends apart”
“How does the water flow in a Stream?”
“Does not the Wind know when to Stop and Start?…”
“If this be so will not the Creator look out for the Dreamers of Peace…”
Then I knew that all Good Leadership and Power in Underlight would be those
who practice forgiveness and Peace, Peace, Peace…..
[Quote 1 taken from “Another Antidote History from Balthiir Posted by Hunter…..Thanks to them Dreamers like Theofanes are not forgotten ]

The most important lesson I've learned over this past year, is not to let anyone make you cruel. No matter how badly you want to give the world a taste of it's own bitter medicine, it is never worth losing yourself.

This one isn't from the past of the city, but from a wise man back home that I thought I'd share:

Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams.

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, Love the people that treat you right, forgive the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get the chance, take it. If it change your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just said it would be worth it."
~ The Rhyming Doctor
