Thank you for all the love you gave me.
There could be no one stronger.
Thank you for the many beautiful songs.
They will live long and longer
AGAINST YOU I WILL FLING MYSELF,
UNVANQUISHED AND UNYIELDING, O DEATH!

The body of Benjamin Franklin, printer (like the cover of an old book, its contents worn out, and stript of its lettering and gilding) lies here, food for worms. Yet the work itself shall not lost, for it will, as he believed, appear once more In a new and more beautiful edition, corrected and amended by its Author
Even amidst fierce flames the golden lotus can be planted.

Nature and Nature’s laws lay hid in night: God said, ‘Let Newton be!’ and all was light.
I am ready to meet my Maker.
Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
“Dear God: Thanks”
Unmarked for 20 years and now reads: “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.
To yesterday’s companionship and tomorrow’s reunion
And away we go
the world will remember
The Cowboy’s Prayer: Oh Lord, I reckon I’m not much just by myself. I fail to do a lot of things I ought to do. But Lord, when trails are steep and passes high, Help me to ride it straight the whole way through. And when in the falling dusk I get the final call, I do not care how many flowers they send – Above all else the happiest trail would be for you to say to me, ‘Let’s ride, My friend.’ Amen
…and in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make
I don’t get no respect
I will not be back after these messages
He thinketh no evil
~Henry Ward Beecher
