Happy Sunday: Random Hope and Wisdom

Last week, there happened events

that some people wanted more than anything,

that some people feared more than anything

and that some people  wished would never happen.

and that some people  wished would happen every day.

So it is a mixed bag of quotes and wisdom today.
