May those who love us love us
And those who don't love us
May God turn their hearts,
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

"True conformity to the dictates of nature requires reverence for the past and solicitude for the future. 'Nature' is not simply the sensation of the passing moment; it is eternal, though we evanescent men experience only a fragment of it. We have no right to imperil the happiness of posterity by impudently tinkering with the heritage of humanity."


"Every right is married to a duty, every freedom owns a corresponding responsibility. There cannot be genuine freedom unless there exists also genuine order in the moral realm and in the social realm."

HELLO, ANY BODY THERE????

Just wanted to add my 2 cents on favorite authors.

It's a toss up between Karen Marie Moning and Christina Skye.
Each has a series Moning's is the Highlander Series.
Skye has a series called, Draycott Abby.

If you read one it's like M&M's one is never enough. naughty.gif dribble.gif jawdrop.gif

T H White's "The Once and Future King" is the absolute fave. My influences are Stephen King and Anne Rice, but I adore Maeve Binchy.
