“Through each and every one of the verses which the Pen of the Most High hath revealed, the doors of love and unity have been unlocked and flung open to the face of men … From the heaven of God’s Will, and for the purpose of ennobling the world of being and of elevating the minds and souls of men, hath been sent down that which is the most effective instrument for the education of the whole human race. The highest essence and most perfect expression of whatsoever the peoples of old have either said or written hath, through this most potent Revelation, been sent down from the heaven of the Will of the All-Possessing, the Ever-Abiding God.”

Bahá’u’lláh

“Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts.”

Bahá’u’lláh


edit kálmán/left (budapest, hungary): These are the days of giving and receiving; receiving unexpected. When the eyes open to new brightness and we meet realities unknown before. Our soul speaks to Him day and night, and we rediscover the underlying purpose within.

anjali pala/right (venice, italy): I arrive in this strange, watery city shortly after dawn and spend the day wandering through its narrow corridors, thinking about all the places we call home. It is peaceful here in car-less, horn-less, hustle-and-bustle-less Venice, and I am grateful to be back.

    Wonderful… The quotes this year have been so special, and the photos have always been on par!
    Lovely photos, I agree with Leila: those cookies would complement snuggling up with those books! 🙂
