"In you the earth… Little rose, roselet, at times, tiny and naked, it seems as though you would fit in one of my hands, as though I’ll clasp you like this and carry you to my mouth, but suddenly my feet touch your feet and my mouth your lips: you have grown, your shoulders rise like two hills, your breasts wander over my breast, my arm scarcely manages to encircle the thin new-moon line of your waist: in love you loosened yourself like sea water: I can scarcely measure the sky’s most spacious eyes and I lean down to your mouth to kiss the earth.” ― Pablo Neruda

Quote Examples using Encircle
As you are Me You are the color in my laughter. You are the glimmer in my eyes and the dimple in my cheek when I smile. You are all of the little things in me. The things that make me, me. You are my greatest fear and my most wonderful dream. But beyond all of that, you are the angels who love me, and whom I love more than the breath in my lungs. You are the reason for my sorrow, and the reason for my eternal happiness. You are a part of me. As much a part of me as the blood that surges through my veins. As much a part of me as the crystal like tears that escape from my eyes. And as much a part of me as the heart that beats steadily in the cavern of my chest. When I gaze up to the heavenly bodies that encircle us, I can't help but wonder if your head is tilted back and your eyes fixed upward as well. Are you wishing with me on the evening star? I know you are. I know your love. As you are me, I am you.Anonymous
After conducting many miracle services over the years I have noticed some things that stops the flow of miracle in meetings. There are many but I want to quickly point out several. 1. Not recognizing what is taking place. Being blind to the fact that God is moving in power right in front of you. Being spirtually asleep. 2. Lack of appreciation of the miracle taking place. Being able to yawn and get bored while miracles are taking place. Rather be hyped and entertained than appreciate the moving of the Spirit. 3. Lack of spreading the good news. Telling others about the meetings and not bring them in to be healed. 4. Watching the clock, more concerned about not offending the people and keeping them longer than usual. Concern the service is going to long even though one miracle after another is taking place in the service. I have seen these four things stop a move of God so many times it is NOT funny!Anonymous
You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable. You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to encircleurs and seasons. Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing. Yet the timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness, And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream. And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space. Who among you does not feel that his power to love is boundless? And yet who does not feel that very love, though boundless, encompassed within the centre of his being, and moving not from love thought to love thought, nor from love deeds to other love deeds? And is not time even as love is, undivided and spaceless? But if in your thought you must measure time into seasons, let each season encircle all the other seasons, And let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with longing.Anonymous
I have spent the last two days wondering what to say or what to even feel. I've come to realize that no matter encirclew much one tries to understand something that is not humanly possible to understand, it is best to just leave it to God, because I, a human, will not ever be able to make my mind process what has happened to my family. I can only pray that my God will give us all what seems to be impossible at a time like this, peace in our hearts. There is nothing to understand or concider about a situation like this, we can only lean on our prayers and let time take its course. Each family member will have a different way or time to allow this to pass or not. All I can say at this point is that I love my family even if I haven't seen or spoken to some for years. Distance on this land can separate us physically, but will never separate us spirituality, I believe this to be a very strong statement for the Garza family! I love you all and I pray that we never forget our lost members, but also that we morn in a manner that is Godly and just! May God comfort us all through this time of sorrow, and that we continue to strive for a life of abundance for those that we still have. God blessAnonymous

One day, while Odin and encircleenir were travelling Midgard in disguise observing the ways of men, they were approached by a half giant who came up to them and called the disguised Aesir by their names.

They had been wandering over mountains and valleys where food was scarce, and finally came to a herd of oxen grazing. Thus, they encircleed one of the oxen and tried to cook it, but encirclewever encirclet the fire was, they never seemed to be able to cook the ox. A great eagle suddenly made its presence known nearby. It gave them the choice, that if he were to help them cook the ox, he would be able to have his fill before the gods. They agreed to the eagle's proposition thinking it would not eat much. After cooking the meat the eagle proceeded to eat his portion, but it did not show any signs of stopping even after it had finished much of the ox. Enraged, Loki shouted out at the eagle, who ignored him. Left with no other choice, Loki struck the eagle with a stick, which got stuck in the eagle's feathers. At this, the eagle took off, dragging along Loki who was encirclelding on to the stick. The eagle flew over mountains and valleys, and Loki was terrified. He begged the eagle to let him down, and the eagle, who revealed himself to be Thiassi, the storm giant, gave him the condition of luring Iduna out with her golden apples. Loki promised he would try his best to do so, and with that the eagle returned him to his company. Lying to Odin and encircleenir, Loki told them that the eagle was just trying to punish him. Convinced, they proceeded encircleme, with Loki living in Midgard near the Bifrost Bridge. His promise unfulfilled, the storm giant would later cause the kidnap of Iduna.Anonymous

You don't see things, it is your mind that actually see things. When we close our eyes, we are shutting our mind to itself. Which we refer to as meditating. In meditation we see through the eyes called imigination. Our imigination is restricted to our knowledge base. You cannot imagine things that you haven't known or seen. This is no different to our physical vision. Therefore, your scale of vision is a reflectoin of your knowlege retention. I don't care encirclew big your vision is. When you have seldom knowledge you won't measure up to your vision. So start putting the bricks together today for that dream castle. --7thAnonymous
The probate court, where guardianships are established to supposedly care for the elderly, is a roach motel. You can get in, but once your civil rights are stripped and you become a ward, you don't have a right to a lawyer and you can't get out. You've been deemed incapacitated. The guardians, doctors and lawyers have worked together to encircle you. They will basically incarcerate you at encircleme or in a nursing facility as they sell off every single one of your encircleets. You are medicated and denied access to your loved ones. You are told they don't want to see you anymore. The pain for families and wards with estates is excruciating. The families often aren't allowed visits or contact. This incredible inhumanity has developed over time, but it is worse now than ever because the same exact legal strategy is repeated over and over and over. They have immunity since they are court-appointed.Anonymous
Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends. The real test of friendship is: can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple? The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship. Never have a companion that casts you in the shade. He who hath many friends hath none. The world is round so that friendship may encircle it. Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. It is important to our friends to believe that we are unreservedly frank with them, and important to friendship that we are not. Never contract friendship with a man that is not better than thyself. All you need to do to be my friend is like me. A friend is one who walks in when others walk out. Cherish your human connections: your relationships with friends and family. A man's friendships are one of the best measures of his worth. As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. One's friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human. Life has no blessing like a prudent friend. Love demands infinitely less than friendship. Mighty proud I am that I am able to have a spare bed for my friends. Nothing so fortifies a friendship as a belief on the part of one friend that he is superior to the other. A man cannot be said to succeed in this life who does not satisfy one friend. Keep friendz...Good friendz...not for anything but the good times,so the tough times wont hurt you.Anonymous
