Words of wisdom

THE LAUGHING HEART

"Your life is your life
Don't let it be clubbed into dank submission
Be on the watch.
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere.
It may not be much light but
It beats the darkness.

Be on the watch.
The gods will offer you chances.
Know them.
Take them.
You can't beat death
But you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it
The more light there will be.

Your life is your life.
Know it while you  have it.
You are marvelous
The gods wait to delight in you"
(Charles Bukowski)

Albert Schweitzer said "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit" I thank you all!
