Spring Flowers

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young     Inline image 1

'Daffodils come before the swallow dares
And takes the winds of March with beauty'
-William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
–William Wordsworth, I Wander’d Lonely as a Cloud

Always end the day with a positive thought.

Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard today was, tomorrow is full of possibilities.

A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.
Look for something positive in every day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.

Not all of us have one clear purpose. If you have many interests and can't stick to any one thing, this is for you:
Discussions are always better than arguments, because an argument is to find out who is right and a discussion is to find out what is right.
