I might think I can’t take it any more, that I can’t go on any more, but one way or another I get past that.

I know a beautiful soul when I see one. You can never meet them without being touched. They’re like lights in the middle of darkness. You jump to them for protection, warmth, guidance, love, an honest advice, a sincere deed and you always keep an eye on them wherever you go in life. They’re human too, obviously, and their humanness is the finishing touch to an already fascinating being.

So gentle, so kind, so alive, yet so approachable. I love such people.
