Be with those who help your being 
Be with those who help your being.Don’t sit with indifferent people, whose breathcomes cold out of their mouths.Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.If you don’t try to fly,and so break yourself apart, you will be broken open by death,when it’s too late for all you could become.Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh rootsand makes them green.Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?
Ode 2865 Trans. Coleman Barks 
Look at Love...
Look at Love...how it tangleswith the one fallen in lovelook at spirithow it fuses with earthgiving it new lifewhy are you so busywith this or that or good or badpay attention to how things blend

translated by Nader Khalili 
The Force of Friendship 
A sea-cow, a dugong, finds a special pearland brings it up on land at night. By the light it gives offthe dugong can graze on hyacinths and lilies.The excrement of the dugong is precious ambergrisbecause it eats such beauty. Anyone who feeds on Majestybecomes eloquent. The bee, from mystic inspiration,fills its rooms with honey.So the dugong grazes at night in the pearl-glow.Presently, a merchant comes and drops black loamover the pearl, then hides behind a tree to watch.The dugong surges about the meadow like a blind bull.Twenty times it rushes at nothing, passing the moundwhere the pearl is.So Satan couldn't seethe spirit-center inside Adam.
