We all agree now – by ‘we’ I mean intelligent people under sixty – that a work of art is like a rose. A rose is not beautiful because it is like something else. Neither is a work of art. Roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.
A pretty pink rose
A blossom without peer
Love is in flower
- David Alexander Walker
A beautiful, pink flower in my garden
A beautiful, pink rose that blooms every year.
The stem is as green as string beans.
As strong as a piece of metal that will never break.
It stands there straight as can be,
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
I find hope in the darkest of days,
and focus in the brightest.
I do not judge the universe.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
