By starving emotions

"By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it."

-- Joseph Collins


"Emotions are the next frontier to be understood and conquered. To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions.... It's time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it."

-- Doc Childre

When Irish eyes

When Irish eyes are smiling,

I'm looking over

I'm looking over a four leaf clover

Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before.

My wild Irish Rose

The sweetest flower that grows
You may search everywhere
But none can compare to my wild Irish rose

The sweetest flower that grows
Someday for my sake she may let me take
A bloom from my wild Irish rose

And live every day as if it were your last.

There's a dear little plant

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St. Patrick himself, sure, that sets it;
And the sun of his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the mireland,
And they call it the dear little Shamrock of Ireland.

~an old Irish saying

Death is not the end.
Death can never be the end.

Death is the road.
Life is the traveller.
The Soul is the Guide

Our mind thinks of death.
Our heart thinks of life.
Our soul thinks of Immortality.
