Gifts of life
Plenty of Gifts...
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To every child, a good example.
To all, charity.
To yourself, respect.

it is the presence of fear yet the will to go on.

the less I let things upset or affect me.


Woman
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is
the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.


My Special Lady
I will hold her heart like a man should hold his woman’s
Stay with her, listen to her and care for her like my baby girl
Talk to her, trust her and confide in her
Love her and let it be known
Be proud of her but tell her when I think she is wrong
Tell her what is best if she can’t see it for herself
Hold her when she needs me
Love her when she needs it the most
Hold onto her body like I do to her soul
Be always faithful even with my eyes and words
Thank you T.

A lady is like an artichoke...
You have to do a fair bit of work in order to reach her heart!


Life & Work
Change YOUR attitude
Play
Make their day
Be present

Say what you mean.
Mean what you say
... yet, don't be mean when you say it

Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone.

Sometimes I just sit there and wonder why I'm not used to the lies, disappointment, and heartbreak. I guess it's because something inside of me just keeps holding on to the hope that I cannot change the world but I can make a change in this world.

People think that I must be a very strange person.
This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy.

When I am gone!
Do not look for me when I'm gone, for there will never be another me...
Look no further but into your heart, for I am there, and will always be...


When I want to be mean
Why don't you try practicing random acts of intelligence
and senseless acts of self-control?

Sarcasm is just one more service I offer.

Love is a foreign language to me.

Awwww, did I step on your poor little itty bitty ego?

Can you keep a secret? Good... so can I.

A million sperm... and YOU were the fastest!

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like
and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
