Pick up one grain of sand from the Atlantic coast Carried it to the Pacific coast and set it down Repeat until every last grain has been moved This is but a drop of time in the bucket of eternity
In the overall scheme of the universe We are equivalent to a single subatomic particle Spinning sporadically inside one of the many atom Which make up a single grain of sand Yet the possession of our soul somehow Makes us very significant!
Did you whisper a prayer before the roar of the inevitable end? Should we have listened harder, held you closer, and tried so very much more to persuade your troubled mind not to let go?
I don't know.
You, in all your lightness held me so convincingly in oblivion of your parched spirit. Too many years of despair, I reckon. And too little human affinity found.
I will never know, what drove your final decision to meet the vast unknown. It's terrifying me to think that you felt that was the only choice. But even if I grieve that you will never light up the world with your dazzling smile, gentle touch, or kindness anymore. I see you for the brave and wondrous creature that you are. Brave to live so far. And brave to end it.
Nothing grows now, the dry spell hit this summer hard. And yet... The gentle fragrance of all blossoms linger in the air ever since you took your leave.
Dear angels in the heavens... you have a new sister now. Be kind to her, love her and hold her so hard that she will never again feel lacking.
Everything comes to those who wait. Even a worm will turn. If wealth is lost, nothing is lost. If health is lost, something is lost. If character is lost, all is lost. If knowledge is power, how did he become POTUS? Love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are. Revenge is a dish best served cold. There is no shame in not knowing; the shame is in not finding out. A penny for his thoughts is price fixing. As you make your bed, so must you lie in it. Don't wash your ***** sheets in public. Empty vessels make the most noise. Every man has his price. People who live in glass houses should keep their pants up. Shrouds have no pockets. The Devil looks after his own. To err is human, to forgive... Meh! What goes up must come down. You are what you eat (hambuglers?) Let the punishment fit the crime. It is better to smarter than you appear, than to appear smarter than you are. If you lie down with the dogs, you get up with the fleas. Money earned by deceit, goes by deceit. Open confession is good for the soul. Patience is a virtue. Behind every great man, there is a woman being paid off. Ask my companions if I be a thief. All roads lead to imprisonment. If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well. The big apple is rotten to the Corps (a soldier's lament) A journey of a lifetime begins with a subpoena. The chain of command is only as strong as its weakest ****. He who pays the ******, rents the room. It takes a hundred lies to cover one lie. It's hard to juggle sand. **** the chicken to scare the monkey. Like father, like son. No man can serve two masters. One may as well be hanged for sheep as well as lamb. Nothing is certain but death and Tax Returns. No rest for the wicked. Russians make strange bedfellows. Give a man enough tie and he'll hang himself. Fences make bad politics. Little things please little minds. Fish always stink from the head downwards. From the sublime to the ridiculous is only two questions: What did you know? When did you know it? The truth will out. The longest day must have an end. Pride comes before the fall (so do a lot of other deadly sins) Put your money where my mouth is (S.D.)
Red tie at night. Donny's delight. Red tie at morning. Stormy gives warning.
Seek and ye shall find. Speak as you find. Out of sight. Out of mind.
