Quote of the Week

Mother would have been 95 yesterday. My dad had blue eyes. But he was crazy about mother’s brown eyes. He said when she looked at him with those warm brown eyes his heart melted.

“The sea has its pearls,
The heaven its stars, –
But my heart, my heart,
My heart has its love.”

“Das Meer hat seine Perlen.” Stanza 1.
By Heinrich Heine [1797-1856]
