They were going to die. They knew it, and their last words were I love you. Even in great pain, their last words were of love... People who could have saved themselves and they ran back in to save others instead. If humanity is capable of that, how can I lose hope in humanity?
This is something that I cherish. Once in a friend's home I came across this blessing, and took it down in shorthand ... it says something I like to live with Oh Thou, who dwellest in so many homes, possess Thyself of this. Bless the life that is sheltered here. Grant that trust and peace and comfort abide within, and that love and life and usefulness may go out from this home forever.
This was love at first sight, love everlasting a feeling unknown, unhoped for, unexpected--in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness it took entire possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.
Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good plays, good company, good conversation -- what are they They are the happiest people in the world.
Three Little Words In our lives there often are times that can be summed up briefly. Many lengthy discussions could be narrowed down to a few words. It could be good to be short and to the point...at times. We all come across those that give explanations, followed by a story of why this or that occurred. They need to justify their actions...and go on and on. Turmoil between people is mostly lengthy, repeated words stated louder and louder. Several 3 word statements; chosen to suit the situation are available..."wanta get away", "I don't care", "wanta stay", "I am listening", "wanta kiss", "I love you", "want forgiveness", I am sorry". Three words can go a long way. Know Yer Loved, CWD
Through me you pass into the city of woeThrough me you pass into eternal painThrough me among the people lost for aye.Justice the founder of my fabric movedTo rear me was the task of power divine,Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.Before me things create were none, save thingsEternal, and eternal I shall endure.All hope abandon, ye who enter here.
