 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.

~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.

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