“The soul is a liar, it's lying to you. A little arrogance is good for the soul though.”
Vincent de Paul, S.I.

“Believe nothing, question everything, assume nothing.”
vincent de paul , TWISTED TIMES: Son of Man

“It’s a pity you think that the world can be righted through murder. Isn’t there enough death in the world already from hunger, starvation, calamities, and the stupid wars you stupid humans wage against each other?”
Vincent de Paul, Flashes of Vice: Vol III

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
Anais Nin

“Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam

“Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.”
Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach and Other Poems

“I am no king, and I am no lord,
And I am no soldier at-arms," said he.
"I'm none but a harper, and a very poor harper,
That am come hither to wed with ye."

"If you were a lord, you should be my lord,
And the same if you were a thief," said she.
"And if you are a harper, you shall be my harper,
For it makes no matter to me, to me,
For it makes no matter to me."

"But what if it prove that I am no harper?
That I lied for your love most monstrously?"

"Why, then I'll teach you to play and sing,
For I dearly love a good harp," said she.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

Ed Rambeau Thanks for your recent friend request, Vincent, which I happily accept. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author, so perhaps we can share books and ideas in the future.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
