“Let the tears which fell, and the broken words which were exchanged in the long close embrace between the orphans, be sacred. A father, sister, and mother, were gained, and lost, in that one moment. Joy and grief were mingled in the cup; but there were no bitter tears: for even grief arose so softened, and clothed in such sweet and tender recollections, that it became a solemn pleasure, and lost all character of pain.”

Nothing and Everything

I’m not cultured enough to be an elf,
I’m too polite to be a dwarf,
I’m not friendly enough to be a hobbit,
I’m too social to be a dragon,
I’m not clever enough to be a detective,
I’m too independent to be his doctor,
I’m not caring enough to be a time lord,
I’m too emtional to be a dalek ,
I’m not epic enough to be a vampire,
I’m too unique to be a human,
I’m not evil enough to be a sith,
I’m too dark to be a jedi,
I’m not artful enough to be a Dodger,
I’m too crafty to be an Oliver Twist,
I’m not playful enough to be a nymph,
I’m too silly to be a monster,
I’m not perfect enough to be a fairy tale,
I’m too joyful to be a tragedy…

In saying nothing… I have told you who I am.
