"As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame; / [ . . . ] Each mortal thing does one thing and the same: / Deals out that being indoors each one dwells; / Selves -- goes itself; 'myself' it speaks and spells, / Crying 'What I do is me; for that I came'." --Gerard Manley Hopkins

I know full well that people, being people, will disappoint each other.

But some disappointments just make one want to give up and die.

As the old saying goes, "this too shall pass." It's just that it hurts so much before it does.

Looking for God's comfort . . . and a bit of wisdom wouldn't hurt either.
