“Traveling in the company of those we love is home in motion.”
Leigh Hunt

“Fail not to call to mind, in the course of the twenty-fifth of this month, that the Divinest Heart that ever walked the earth was born on that day; and then smile and enjoy yourselves for the rest of it; for mirth is also of Heaven's making. ”
Leigh Hunt

“Jenny kissed me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in:
Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,
Say that health and wealth have missed me,
Say I'm growing old, but add--
Jenny kissed me!”
Leigh Hunt, The Poetical Works of Leigh Hunt
