#31 Words, words, mere words, no matter from the heart.
— W. Shakespeare
#30 “Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.”
– C. M. Schulz

[Quote Log] …i.e. The result of that one time I forgot to post for weeks but really wanted to.
Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got. |Robert Brault
Forgiving is love’s toughest work, and love’s biggest risk. If you twist it into something it was never meant to be, it can make you a doormat or an insufferable manipulator. Forgiving seems almost unnatural. Our sense of fairness tells us people should pay for the wrong they do. But forgiving is love’s power to break nature’s rule. |Lewis B. Smedes
The man who forgives is far stronger than the man who fights. |Nathan Croall
(The day I learned the reason for fear, and what I was was looking for)
As Two Ships Passing in the Night
As two ships passing in the night,
So quietly neath the stars soft light;
Our paths cross but now and then.
Reaching out, seeking one another again.
We say hello and then we part,
Knowing we’ve shared a piece of our heart.
Some friendships stay and sadly some go.
My prayers remain steady hoping ours will grow.
I ache when you’re hurting,
I cry when you’re sad.
Wanting to comfort and hold you so bad.
Know that I’m waiting here, with open arms,
To share all your troubles and relish your charms.
I have nothing to offer but the soul of a friend,
Strong shoulders to lean on that don’t easily bend.
I offer these freely with no strings attached,
For in caring and sharing you’ll not meet my match.
So on some long and lonely night
When nothing seems to go just right
Close your eyes and think of me,
Under the moon’s glow is where I’ll be.
No matter what happens, tonight, when I leave, I don’t want to be scared anymore.
– The Karate Kid.
Water over wine.
Stop trying to be friends.
All that is gold does not glitter;
all that is long does not last;
All that is old does not wither;
not all that is over is past.
Enjoy the little things in life for one day you’ll look back and realize that they were the big things.
– D. Brant
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
“Laughter is the closest distance between two people.”
– Victor Borge
“Women are made to be loved not understood.”
― Oscar Wilde
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde
“Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light.”
― Oscar Wilde
“Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.”
― Hunter S. Thompson
#13 I was at a party in my head
contemplating everything I said
But every time I tried to make a sound
the words they were nowhere to be found
Saw you in a thumbnail photograph
Wondered if you still knew how to laugh
I wish I could see
You’d probably be laughing back at me
(Blue Forever – Matthew Barber)
