    I Love to Find Them

    I'll be reading along when suddenly a sentence or phrase will strike me and I'll think, I should really write that down to save, but I always forget. So, I thought maybe if I tried to post the quotes here I might have an incentive for remembering to save them.

    so closely to life is not biological necessity - it is envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can.' - Yann Martel - 'Life of Pi'

      When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is...

    To love is to do more than enjoy. Some enjoy then regret. Those who love cherish. If some bash that. Then love was never returned. So find the one that loves.
