Maybe it's all wishfull thinking.smile.gif LOA

My Lady,
There are things with in us that make us who we are and there is no understanding why they are there, but they are.

“It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.”
George Eliot, (English Victorian Novelist. Pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans, 1819-1880)

Dear Ulster,
A gentleman and a philosopher.

Yes,"never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive" very wise indeed.
But even when alive one can sometimes give up some foolish fancy dreams.
I know I did in some way.
Ulster, if you don't mind my asking,would you honor me with your friendship? smile.gif LOA

My Lady of Avalon,

You hold me in too high esteem hug.gif .

I am honored that you would consider me your friend. Not only don't I mind but I am very appreciative and humbled by your kind gesture.

I look forward to our conversations in friendship.

To a lady in his shield,
That sparkled on the yellow field,
Beside remote Shalott"

Thank you dear Ulster,

I've put up your name as my friend.You know I've read many of your posts and find that you write your ideas in a clear an intelligent way and respect for others point of view.This is why I asked your friendship sir.
I have always had people in high esteem especially the ones who make sense either when they write or speak.The only ones that I don't care much are the ones who takes pleasure in insulting others intelligence.And will look forward to our conversations in friendship as well.

Now you must tell me from what book you write all these beautiful quotations.

The Lady of Shalott, I should try and get reacquainted with this wonderful story. smile.gif LOA

I think respect is very very important and I try to be respectful as best I can.
I also know that there are many wiser, smarter, wittier, clever, kinder, gentler, authentic people out there.
Kindness and consideration is so inexpensive and easy to give and translates so well into action.
I like to read and many things in life have been said before far better than I could ever hope to say or express myself. I search for quotes and proverbs in books , magazines, and the internet is a great resource right at hand. Some of my favorite books for quotes are The Bridge of Stars, 365 Prayers, Blessings and Meditations From Around The World, Sonnets From The Portuguese, Bits and Pieces, The Magazine That Motivates The World.
Many members of this forum have wonderful quotes and proverbs as their signatures.

True indeed.
Sadly these values are practically disapearring slowly.

Anecdote here about respect.
I've send via e-mail to an acquainttance of mine who did not understand the meaning of the word respect at all.
I've send it in french and english hopefully the one in question knows how to read at least one language!!! smile.gif LOA
