My favorite lines these past months are these:

"There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes.

As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment -- love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others."

--- by J. Donald Walters

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”

- this quote is an amalgamation of two quotes, according to writer David Michael Perkins of Texas and California:

one by Peter Pan creator James M. Barrie:

"Be kinder than necessary."

and the other by Plato:

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."


Just like to mention that the two songs that make me cry are the following:

1. Linda Rondstandt's version of Blue Bayou...particularly the lines:

I’m going back someday

Come what may

To Blue Bayou

Where the folks are fine

And the world is mine

On Blue Bayou

2. Rod Stewart's version of Waltzing Matilda particularly the lines:

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda

You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

And it's a battered old suitcase

in a hotel someplace

And a wound that would never heal
