Friendship





 There is nothing so well worth having as friends. 
Never lose a chance to make them.

Asking for Things



I asked for health,
that I might do greater things,
I was given infirmity,
that I might do better things...
I asked for riches, 
that I might be happy,
I was given poverty,
that I might be wise...
I asked for power,
that I might have the praise of men,
I was given given weakness,
that I might feel the need of God...
I asked for all things,
that I might enjoy life,
I was given life,
that I might enjoy all things...
I got nothing that I asked for, 
 but everything that I hoped for,
Almost despite myself,
my unspoken prayers were answered,
I am among men most richly blessed.

~Dancing in the Rain~

Not to Much to Carry
~Adolphe William   Bouguereau~

If it rains on my parade,
I'll just dance in it.

~Character~

~The Confidence~
James Tissot
You can tell more about a person 
by what they say about others 
than you can by what others say 
about them.

~Somewhere~

Someone,
Somewhere,
Dreams of your smile,
And while thinking of you,
Thinks that life is worthwhile,
So whenever you're lonely,
Remember it's true
Someone, 
Somewhere,
Is thinking of you.
