The sun has burst the sky
Because I love you
And the river its banks.
I was raised to feel that doing nothing was a sin. I had to learn to do nothing.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've got no money for butter.
Quote of the day
Life does not give itself to one who tries to keep all its advantages at once. I have often thought morality may perhaps consist solely in the courage of making a choice.
