    Grief is like a bomber circling round

    and dropping its bombs each time the circle brings it overhead; physical pain is like a steady barrage on a trench in World War One, hours of it with no let up for a moment; Thought is never static; pain often is. C.S. Lewis

    "A flower does not think of competing with the

    flower next to it. It simply blooms." - Anonymous (Maybe?) I really like this quote, for it keeps me grounded. It's infuriating when people are always trying to prove themselves or be the best at something, especially with things like beauty and materialistic endeavours.
