 Stephen Jenkinson


Life is the flower for which love is the honey. — Victor Hugo
We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning. — Henry Ward Beecher 
The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live. — Flora Whittemore
