The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. :) Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know. I love everything that is old; old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wines. how do u know if this earth is not other planet's hell?
