Spring

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March.

Robert Frost (1874–1963)
Two Tramps in Mud Time (1936)



O! how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day!

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
The Two Gentlemen of Verona

April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

T.S. Eliot (1888–1965)
The Waste Land (1922)



In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
Locksley Hall (1842)

Problemas

Será que temos mesmo problemas? Ou será apenas que temos um pequeno problema de atitude perante a vida? Vejam o video, e pensem de novo na maneira como encaramos a vida. God is great!



" A vida não é algo sem sentido: é uma viagem, onde não existem problemas nem obstaculos, apenas desafios."

A matter of perspective

Um dos melhores filmes que já vi, diálogos fantásticos, e uma das frases mais brilhantes do cinema. :)





"Fire. Fire. Fire. Take a letter, Ensign. To His Honor, the United States Secretary of State, Mr. John Forsyth. My dear Mr. Forsyth, it is my great pleasure to inform you that you are, in fact, correct. The slave fortress in Sierra Leone does not exist."

In the arms of an angel



Uma grande e querida amiga minha disse umas vez, já lá vão uns anos, algo sobre mim. O que ela disse descreve de uma forma bonita, e bastante forte para mim, aquilo que é a amizade. pelo menos a maneira como eu vivo a amizade.

Eu sei que já fiz muitas coisas mal nesta vida, e sei que já devo ter magoado os meus amigos e amigas. Mas quero acreditar que todos sabem que podem contar comigo a qualquer momento, em qualquer lugar, 24/7.

Ela dizia sobre mim, que eu era o anjo da guarda dela.

Espero que não demore muito o dia em que eu possa ter uma longa conversa com o meu anjo da guarda, ele que de tantos perigos já me livrou. Até lá, na minha humildade, serei o melhor amigo que sei ser, esse "anjo da guarda", que por vezes se sacrifica, porque acredita que não existe maior tesouro que um amigo.

my dreams...

"I have spread my dreams under your feet
tread softly, because you tread on my dreams."
William Butler Yeats

I am in a romantic mood tonight...

I whispered, 'I am too young,'
And then, 'I am old enough';
Wherefore I threw a penny
To find out if I might love.
'Go and love, go and love, young man,
If the lady be young and fair.'
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
I am looped in the loops of her hair.

O love is the crooked thing,
There is nobody wise enough
To find out all that is in it,
For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
One cannot begin it too soon.

William Butler Yeats

Prayer For A Friend



Whatever your cross,
whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain....
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall;
But God's always ready, to answer your call....
He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
a word from His lips, can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, by dawn's early light...
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,
to give you His grace, and send you His love.
May God fill your day with blessings!
