Tuesday; the little prince;

Rose, you are the most beautiful. You are not  empty, as the little Prince said, your scent is alluring, warm and lingering, always more then you  want to give.  You welcome sunshine and rain  on your dark red silk,  raindrops like tears attracting all the smiles you can get. Are you boasting or complaining, no I think the little Prince is sometimes a little superficial in his judgement, because he thinks he owns you. No one owns You,  You  are so quiet, your beauty taken as it  fades.

Monday, bookshelf;

The Bookman's Tale, a book to keep, to read again.

The Bookman's Tale: A Novel of Obsession: Charlie Lovett ...

Guaranteed to capture the hearts of everyone who truly loves books, The Bookman’s Tale is a former bookseller’s sparkling novel and a delightful exploration of one of literature’s most tantalising mysteries. 

I enjoyed  to read this book.

Sunday; trust;

If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.
Barack Obama
Very true, Mister Obama, is this a satire, or are you the best actor in the white house? Ts

The only white man you can trust is a dead white man.
Robert Mugabe
Bad, Mister Robert Mugabe, you must talk from experience, but then you are a black man and your history tells, you can't be trusted either.  That makes two! Ts

I trust no one, not even myself.
Joseph Stalin
Bad, Mister Joseph Stalin, glad you have expired, you were one of the worst not to be trusted.
Unfortunately, I must say, there are still plenty of people like you around, as bad as you were, but with time they will expire too and will be history like you. Not remembered with gratitude but with disgust. Ts 

Seize the day, and put the least possible trust in tomorrow.
Horace, you were the leading Roman lyric poet during Augustu’s time.  You were born 65 BC
an awful long time ago. You know the world has changed a lot but not the people, they are still the same.
So,  I accept, carpe diem and do not trust tomorrow, you knew exactly why you said it. Ts

We are all selfish and I no more trust myself than others with a good motive.
Lord Byron
Lord Byron,  you were a romantic, a fine poet. You  travelled to fight against the Ottoman Empire in the Greek War of Independence, for which Greeks revere you as a national hero. You died young at age 36.
You were the  most flamboyant and notorious of the major Romantics,  actually 
you were selfish and a spoilt brat, no more to say. Ts
