Java Finch

A  L  O  H  A !
Character cannot be developed
in ease and quiet.
 Only through experience of trial and suffering
can the soul be strengthened,
ambition inspired, and
success achieved.
 Helen Keller 

When I use the camera, 
I often feel like I know part
 of the people or places 
I come in contact with.
Christophe Agou

'Sacred Love Only'
Love grows by giving. 
The love we give away is
the only love we keep. 
The only way to retain love
is to give it away.
Elbert Hubbard

I've suffered enough over the years that I've become quite a character.

Great photos and quotes pairings. I love the one about the only love you get is what you give away. We need more generosity in this country.
