When life gives you lemons… free yourself by tapping!

Ive never been busier which is good for an author and yet life has done what it usually does and thrown into the mix yet another kidney stone (the last of three since October) and a family illness thats hard to accept. It has been a tough few months and Christmas was a Read More

John Donne
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”
John Donne, No man is an island – A selection from the prose

William Shakespeare
“The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes:
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When mercy seasons justice.”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Allen Saunders
“Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.”
Allen Saunders

“Family is the most important possession you can ever have, and don’t be mistaken as to what family actually is. Family are those who share the same bloodline, but more importantly, family are people who you care about and call you friend!”
