Charlie Chapman's ending speech in 'The Great Dictator'-
(I apologise if it's a wall of text but it moves me in a way words fail.)

'I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate;
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in:
machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little:
More than machinery we need humanity;
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair".

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish. . .

Soldiers: don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate, only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty.

In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written:
- "The kingdom of God is within man"
Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you, the people.

You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let's use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.

Soldiers! In the name of democracy: let us all unite'

I wanna show you that all is nothing
(And everything is you)
And let you know that I’m here forever

And even though this life is very hard
And our leaders have forgot they had a heart
A people teach you fear is all you’ve got
(Don’t fear a thing baby I’m here)
And friends will sometimes play you and put you on the spot

I wanna show you how beautiful life is
(and you come from love)
I wanna teach you to be a peaceful soul
(Balance is the key)
I wanna show you that all is nothing
(And everything is you)
And let you know that I’m here forever

Remeber that this life is like a dream
(So sweet dreams baby)
And everything that happens isn’t real
Just place your trust in that no matter what
The principle that runs this world will always be your heart

I wanna show you how beautiful life is
(and you come from love)
I wanna teach you to be a peaceful soul
(Balance is the key)
I wanna show you that all is nothing
(And everything is you)
And let you know that I’m here forever
(Living inside you)

I'll be here for you even when I'm gone,
cause everything is love
and love is really you"

Thank you so much. It is a song I wrote for my child when I found out I have a chronic illness with an uncertain progression. Although thankfully it is not normally terminal it did put me in a place of inspiration to let those words come through.

I am happy it resonated with you in a good way. It is for you and anyone who takes something positive from it as much as it is for my child.

much love

Another great one came to mind, an Ancient Sanskrit poem:

Live to this day,
for it is life.

In its brief course
lie all the realities of our existence.

Yesterday is but a memory;
Tomorrow is only a vision.

Live well, then, to this day.

Such is the salutation of the dawn.

It is ok to worship -for you are seeking a better path
even if the name is different -still all our God alas

if time comes around -and you feel as if mis led
the LORD sees your intents -and so your SOULS should pass

Do your best @ being your best

AND MAY THE LORD GUIDE US IN AREAS OF THE UNKNOWN

Thanks for the energy OP


NAMASTE
LOVE LIGHT ETERNIA*******

If my people have a prayer for you, it is that you would wake up
tomorrow and walk this world consciously. ..
I pray that every movement you make will have a purpose..
that every word you speak
have a meaning, and that every thought that you have be a prayer.

Thank you,

Sure, I wanted a response but didn't have any expectations as such. Expectations tend to lead to misery.

I have ideas and then set them free. What happens next is anyone's guess.

Peace

Not sure if im to late for your project but i have written down a "prayer" some time ago in a little book i keep for those spiritual inspirations i have.
I think its the only prayer i ever made. I have not been writing in it for some time and actually forgot about some things i have written. Last week i picked it up again and found this "prayer".
Although i am not religious, it does have a certain feel to it i think. Its a translation from dutch to english so i hope it comes across right


Oh, light that is in everything
light my path
enlighten my heart
free me of my chains
watch over me and
let your presence in me
shine stronger every day
be anchored in me
and help me light the fire
in others..
