How creepy! I read this sentence this morning, somewhere, and now at the end of the day! :roll:


I know the feelings, Miss. Ladybird... (I really cried when I had no shoes! :oops: But, this pierced my heart when I ran an eye over this quotation in a book... :cry: )

Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”

a very optimistic view to death :mrgreen:

Quotation confesses inferiority.

What's the use of a good quotation if you can't change it!
=Robert Holmes=

Wise men make proverbs, but fools repeat them.

Don't ever quote me!
