Stolen Quote: Honey

It is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower, but it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee . . . be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees. ~ Kahlil Gibran, “The Prophet”

Stolen Quote: Keep Away

Stolen Quote: Unconditionally

I guess her life was just one long Roman Holiday.
