    Could have done

    To make me good

    And more than any fate

    To make me happy.

    You have done it

    Without a touch,

    Without a word,

    2. Even if you're in the gutter, you have the option of looking at the stars. --Wayne Dyer

    - Generosity is not in giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is in giving me that which you need more than I do.
