" It intrigues me, the way you smile and let me be, undeterred following your path and detachedly letting me find my own. It inspires me to breathe a little deeper, see a little further, into my very own reflection. It magnifies me, the way you keep your distance, while coming so close to the core - spontaneously and elusively uncovering. It inspires me to breathe a little deeper, see a little further, into my very own reflection."

This was written to my Aquarian boyfriend, who with his detached manner has shown me the meaning of acceptance and most of all TRUST. It represents the way we all should "live and let live", accepting, not only others, but OURSELVES.

" Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated, but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to his own goodness and act on it."
Pablo Casals

FIGHT BACK

never dreamt of it
but it's reality now

it's hard to accept
tough to resist

it has happened
happened to me

all pain and
no fun

it's not an end
but a beginning

to fight back
to win over it

your life
it's not lost

just hidden
win it back

Thomas Crum

" Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such."
Henry Miller

" No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness -- or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated out of it."
Henry Ward Beecher

" Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it onto future generations."
George Bernard Shaw

" The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity."
Francis Maitland Balfour

" No matter how rough the road ahead, look to God and it will soon be the road behind. With God all things are possible. Always trust in Jesus and things will inevitably be all right in the end."
