Beauty

I am often forced to ask others (and myself) this question, when they fail to see what is not necessarily visible to the eye...

The image is a dream.
The beauty is real.
Can you see the difference ?

Love Story

I've read a few books so far....
Some books many times, and many books just about once....
But the one book I can read as many times I lay hands on it is Love Story, by Eric Segal.

So as I read the book again (once more !!!), here's what I like the most, besides the entire book that is...

"When our two souls stand up erect and strong, face to face, silent, 
drawing nigh and nigher 'til the lengthening wings break into fire at either curved point; 
What bitter wrong can the Earth do to us that we should not long be here contented?
Think. 
In mounting higher, the angels would press on us, 
and aspire to drop some golden orb of perfect song into our deep dear silence. 
Let us stay rather on Earth, Beloved, 
where the unfit contrarious moods of men recoil away 
and isolate pure spirits and permit a place to stand and love 
in for a day with darkness and death hour rounding it."
