The following citations have been on my home page

A change is slow in coming
My eyes can scarcely see
The rays of hope come streaming
Through the smoke of apathy


May the spirit never die
Though a troubled heart feels pain
When this long winter is over
It will blossom once again

Loreena McKennitt - Breaking the silence

And if there's only one reason
To live in this world,
I'll find it...
And if there's only one reason
To give of yourself,
Ask the lonely and the dying.

All about Eve - Only one reason


Never cry because you're lonely
Your love will always be around the bend

And never cry because you think you can't make it
You've made it this far
That's better than most

Happy Rhodes - Ode

We apologise for the inconvenience
