Antidote For Cruelty

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The world is so full
of a number of things,
I'm sure we should all
be as happy as kings.
     Robert Louis Stevenson

Mountaintops inspire leaders
but valleys mature them.
    Winston Churchill

Mountaintops are for views
and inspiration, but fruit
is grown in the valleys.
 Billy Graham

Both light and shadow
are the dance of love.

To know how to grow old
is the master work of
wisdom, and one of the
most difficult chapters
in the great art
of living.
Henri Frederic Amiel

 is the antidote
 for cruelty. 

Love You,
    Cloudia & Pixie
