There is something good in all weathers.
If it doesn’t happen to be good for my work today,
it’s good for some other man’s today,
and will come around for me tomorrow.

If you love something, set it free.
If it returns, you have not lost it.
If it disappears and never comes back, then it was never yours to begin with.
And if it just sits there watching television, unaware that it has been set free –
then you probably married it.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness.
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

The most important thing in life is to love someone.
The second most important thing in life is to have someone love you.
The third most important thing is to have the first two, happen at the same time. (Unknown)

His thoughts were slow,
His words were few, and never formed to glisten,
But he was a joy to all his friends –
You should have heard him listen.
