person can't fit in a bookcase.
Ten out of ten people die, so don't take life too

For many, negative thinking is a habit, which over
time, becomes an addiction... A lot of people
suffer from this disease because negative thinking

you, the others are waiting in the wings.

Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden...
it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all,
and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments.
The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief.
It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion
maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow...
Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead."
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease;
where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
And now these things remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
-Bible - 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, 13
The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly.
Most people never have the opportunity to see an angel, or simply do not look well enough
to see them walking amoung us. this, however does not mean they don't exist.
Me, I'm one of the lucky few, not only have I seen an angel, I call her my best friend.
We are, each of us angels with only one wing;
and we can only fly by embracing one another.
-Luciano De Crescenzo
Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have done this
have entertained angels without realizing it.
-Bible - Hebrews 13:2
Angels do find us in our hour of need.
We shall find peace. We shall hear angels.
We shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write
if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What one can be, one must be.
