Quotes, poetry and music to help us all

Hi Sane Forumites

 

Just wanted to start a thread where people can share quotes, poems or parts of literature that can help them get through the tough times.

 

Feel free to tag anyone.

 

My contribution today is from Oscar Wilde:

 

"What seems to us as bitter trial are often blessings in disguise"

I've been listening to 'Rising Appalachia' on youtube lately.  Very uplifting music for me.

@Hamsolo01 nice idea for a thread thanks.

What a great idea for a thread! I need to put my thinking cap on and come with safe-for-forum quotes and music. I'll report back later...

Re: Quotes, poetry and music to help us all

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy spent

 

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one

Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens wish they were young

 

Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is grey and yellow, white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion

 

It is all but a dream within a dream

 

This music will transport you there:-
