For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.
Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine.
Better by far you should forget and smile that you should remember and be sad.
My heart is like a singing bird.
Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun.
