That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness — not by each other's misery. We...
this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...
"You know what's really powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition... Smart-*** comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent looking lady...

And rights have been read,
I think of you often
But for once I meant what I said.
Here I stay, I lay me down,
I'm dug from the rubble, and cut from the kill.
Here I stay, I lay me down,
In a house by the Hill."
as they sometimes will;
When the road your trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high and you want to smile but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit rest if you must but do not quit.
Success is failure turned inside out;
I won’t kiss your best friend or break your heart.
I won’t make you choose between what you love to do & me.
I’m not cold. I’m not reckless.
I’m the girl your father mentions when your mom’s not around.
I’m the girl that gets away.
I will love you more than...

Some snap under pressure
Some don't have the strength to hold you up
Some get a little twisted
Some support you
Some are your favorite
Some are cheap and get bent out of shape
And some actually cover your as.. when you need them
when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and...

And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.
Robert Fulghum, True Love
I'm proud of my heart.
It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,
but somehow it still works.
There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.
"Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The...
After 9/11 when the country was gearing up for war I was in a shop and found a bumper sticker with a quote by Ghandi:
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"
I bought the bumper sticker & it is on my rear bumper to this day.
"Remember today, for it is the beginning. Today marks the start of a brave new future."
I found this article and wanted to share. I printed this out and have it by my computer so I can see it everyday. New thoughts for the new year.

She's the girl that believes that what comes around goes around. The one that hopes for a better day. The one that won't give up on you. She's the girl thats unlike the rest. The one that spent her days smiling, and her nights crying. She's the girl that would love to be loved...
