    TO THE SENSITIVE ONES.

    .. Do not be ashamed of your sensitivity! It has brought you many riches. You see what others cannot see, Feel what others are ashamed to feel. You are more open, less numb. You find it harder to turn a blind eye. You have not closed your heart, in spite of everything. You...

    The cold truth slips out of drunken lips.

    Four Leaf Clover Poem I know a place

    In a world full of fear,

    be courageous. In a world full of lies, be honest. In a world where few care, be compassionate. In a world full of phonies, be yourself. Because the world sees you. The world hopes for you. The world is inspired by you. The world can be better because of you.

    Just One One song can spark a moment,

    
 One flower can wake the dream
 One tree can start a forest,
 One bird can herald spring. One smile begins a friendship, 
One handclasp lifts a soul.
 One star can guide a ship at sea,
 One word can frame the goal One vote can change a nation,
 One sunbeam lights a...
