Let us cry, "All good things
Are ours, nor soul helps flesh more, now, than flesh helps soul!"

Robert Browning

It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls.
A sweet little queen who can't run away;
It's good to be king, whatever it pays.

Tom Petty

To the divine providence it has seemed good to prepare in the world to come for the righteous good things, which the unrighteous shall not enjoy; and for the wicked evil things, by which the good shall not be tormented. But as for the good things of this life, and its ills, God has willed that these should be common to both; that we might not too eagerly covet the things which wicked men are seen equally to enjoy, nor shrink with an unseemly fear from the ills which even good men often suffer.
There is, too, a very great difference in the purpose served both by those events which we call adverse and those called prosperous. For the good man is neither uplifted with the good things of time, nor broken by its ills; but the wicked man, because he is corrupted by this world’s happiness, feels himself punished by its unhappiness.

Augustine of Hippo

A good listener is one who helps us overhear ourselves.

Yahia Lababidi

I begin with two memories of my childhood. Don't ask me why, because I do not know. Perhaps because it helps to get things started.
