    And knows that yesterday is but to-day’s memory and to-morrow is to-day’s dream.

    How shall I go in peace and without sorrow? Nay, not without a wound in the spirit shall I leave this city.
    Mehmet Cavdarhas quoted5 years ago
    And there are those who have little and give it all.
    These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.
    There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
