A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MISS SALLY
THE MINISTRY'S FAVOURITE SECRETARIAL GENIUS
AND ALL ROUND GLAMOUR PUSS
I would love to be in the office today for Miss Sally's birthday, and I know that I will be preparing a special toast to ensure that one corner of a remote Scottish island remains, forever, Miss Sally.
Have a fantastic day, Sally, you are one special slice of fabulousness.
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
She had an unequalled gift... of squeezing big mistakes into small opportunities.
(now he's talking about a girl I can relate to)
Strength, courage and power do not exclude kindness, understanding and consideration. You can be strong and kind; you can be courageous and understanding; you can be powerful and considerate.
Linda R. Dominguez
Immortal longings in me.
It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can stop him from lynching me, and I think that's pretty important.
Martin Luther King Jnr
Truth is the daughter of time.
