Life and Magic, part I

“Man is arrogant in proportion to his ignorance. Man’s natural tendency is to egotism. Man, in his infancy of knowledge, thinks that all creation was formed for him. For several ages he saw in the countless worlds that sparkle through space like the bubbles of a shoreless ocean only the petty candles, the household torches, that Providence had been pleased to light for no other purpose but to make the night more agreeable to man. Astronomy has corrected this delusion of human vanity; and man now reluctantly confesses that the stars are worlds larger and more glorious than his own,—that the earth on which he crawls is a scarce visible speck on the vast chart of creation.

But in the small as in the vast, God is equally profuse of life. The traveller looks upon the tree, and fancies its boughs were formed for his shelter in the summer sun, or his fuel in the winter frosts. But in each leaf of these boughs the Creator has made a world; it swarms with innumerable races. Each drop of the water in yon moat is an orb more populous than a kingdom is of men. Everywhere, then, in this immense design, science brings new life to light. Life is the one pervading principle, and even the thing that seems to die and putrefy but engenders new life, and changes to fresh forms of matter.”

— Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Zanoni

What wise advice have you been given recently?

This one’s from Ryan Holiday: “Whatever it is, know that perhaps the first step to making things better is just not making them worse.”—Kim

Make an effort to be safe, healthy, and strong if you care about the people around you.—Marianne

Don’t be an open book.—Kei

To stay positive and always be grateful.—Joje

Cut them off.—Mayam

“The waiting, the meantime, the in-between. It all serves a purpose even the delays and detours."—Andrea

Trust your gut. Don’t let anybody tell you that you are doing your job wrong because mothers always know best.—Ivy

If the world didn’t give it, the world can’t take it away. My joy comes from the Lord.—Joy

My friend told me: Some situations draw us closer to Him. Sometimes God allows such situations, but let not the enemy reign over your reactions. Yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit, which is to make peace.—Nicole

Look around you and be thankful.—Niña

I think the best advice for the pandemic that’s happening right now is to listen to the authorities—"stay at home, wash hands frequently, and observe social distancing.” They’ve based their actions on the data collected on countries like China, who got hit first with the COVID-19 virus. I know it’s tough to change our normal routines and quarantine at home, but during this desperate time, we should be disciplined to follow orders to get over this global crisis together.—Kath
