With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?
― Oscar Wilde
And I learned what is obvious to a child.
That life is simply a collection
of little lives, each lived one day at a time.
That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers
and poetry and talking to animals.
That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets
and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered.
But most of all, I learned that life is
about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks
with my hand on her knee and sometimes,
on good days, for falling in love.
― Nicholas Sparks
