Why cant we get all the people

Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together?  I guess that wouldn’t work.  Someone would leave.  Someone always leaves.  Then we would have to say good-bye.  I hate good-byes.  I know what I need.  I need more hellos.  ~Charles M. Schulz

of squeezing it into little inkdrops,
And posting it.

That must be counted ere I see thy face?
How shall I charm the interval that lowers
Between this time and that sweet time of grace?
~Frances Anne Kemble

No distance of place or lapse time

No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other’s worth.  ~Robert Southey

All days are nights to see till

All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee to me.

Ye flowers that drop forsaken by the

Ye flowers that drop, forsaken by the spring,
Ye birds that, left by summer, cease to sing,
Ye trees that fade, when Autumn heats remove,
Say, is not absence death to those who love?

Life is so short, so fast the lone hours fly,
We ought to be together, you and I.
