Treasure

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

“Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now & always:
Thou and thou only, first in my heart,
High king of heaven, my Treasure thou art.”

 

“Where there is ruin, there is hope for treasure.” -Rumi

 

“This was probably the only thing that could’ve roused the dying embers of Frodo’s heart and will: an attempt to wrest his treasure from him.” –The Lord of the Rings

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy, he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
 
“And now: it is easy to forget
what i came for
among so many who have always
lived here
swaying their crenellated fans
between the reefs
and besides
you breathe differently down here
I came to explore the wreck.
The words are purposes.
The words are maps.
I came to see the damage that was done
and the treasures that prevail.
I stroke the beam of my lamp
slowly along the flank
of something more permanent
than fish or weed.”
-Part of “Diving into the Wreck” by Adrienne Rich

 

“We talked at the time of a sunken ship on the bottom of the ocean, full of jewels and gold. The sacred we feel in devastation.” -Anne Lamott
