J. California Cooper quotes (showing 1-6 of 6)

“Love entered in my heart one day
A sad, unwelcome guest.
But when it begged that it might stay
I let it stay and rest

It broke my nights with sorrowing
It filled my heart with fears
And, when my soul was prone to sing,
It filled my eyes with tears. that it has gone its way,
I miss the dear ole pain.
And, sometimes, in the night I pray
That Love might come again.”
J. California Cooper

J. California Cooper
“There is always some beauty in life. Look up … and get on with it. Build you a rainbow. Do it yourself! If you can’t do that, build your mind near one. Learn how to fly. Then … soar a little.”
