“One beautiful heart is better than a thousand beautiful faces” – Shakespeare (provenance uncertain)

Search all existence
Land, sea, Earth, Heavens
Seek not fame
But the simplicity of comfort
Mutual respect
Looking past a thousand pretty faces
To find one beautiful heart
Upon which to hang
Hopes, dreams
And Eternity
