You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Conversation or communication gives some message, which has its own importance but the thing that can make it different and most important is style of conversation.
We might heard many times people complaining that they have been insulted. This is the style, this is the way which make it happen to feel like “insulted”. So the way of saying is more important than the said words.
We can take examples from our daily life. Such as in response to some favor given by someone, we say “thanks” with a smile or say so with clenched teeth and angry eyes. Look that due to the way of speech how same word changes its meaning.
Important points of style of conversation are;
– accent loudness of voice
–high or low pitch
–and facial expressions are all important.
In addition to words, non verbal and audible signs also signify the actual value of message.
So it is the style of conversation that explains the meaning of words and shows the effect of words on us.
So not only think before speech but also make the effective style of saying words which cannot make others feel “uncomfortable”, “hurt” or “insulted”.
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Your “good old days” are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.

There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents.
Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.

“My wife and I just don’t have the same feelings for each other we used to have.
I guess I just don’t love her anymore and she doesn’t love me.
What can i do?”
“The feeling isn’t there anymore?” I asked.
“That’s right,” he reaffirmed. “And we have three children we’re really concerned about. What do you suggest?”
“love her,” I replied.
“I told you, the feeling just isn’t there anymore.”
“You don’t understand. the feeling of love just isn’t there.”
“Then love her. If the feeling isn’t there, that’s a good reason to love her.”
“But how do you love when you don’t love?”
“My friend , love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is a fruit of love, the verb.
So love her.
Listen to her.
Are you willing to do that?”
