The Best Things in Life

The best things in life cannot be gained;
nor can they be purchased.
The best things in life must be given
in order to receive them.
Love, friendship, respect, even a smile
must be given before they are returned.

Dallas D'Angelo-Gary 09

... perhaps the inverse might also be true: that the "worst" things in life are those which are never yours, even when you've paid through the nose for them! Freedom cannot be purchased yet never comes cheap. If you want to possess and live a full and fulfilled life, you have first to give it away... The most glorious paradox there is! :)) xx

Good write, Dallas; well done!

The sunset, a dog's loyalty, a child's smile, a rippling stream, and a butterfly do not require a tit for a tat... I prefer that to expected friendship of strangers.
