    When you're weary, feeling small
    When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all (all)
    I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
    And friends just can't be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you (ooo)
    I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
    And pain is all around
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Sail on silver girl
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way
    See how they shine
    Oh, if you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind

    I almost put Bridge over Troubled Water in the what are you listening to thread yesterday. Synchronicity! Definitely time for the powerful classics.

    One great thing I’ve found about getting older is that I can easily strike up a conversation with anyone, like asking the young girl or moody looking woman on the supermarket till if she’s had a busy day and looking forward to clocking off. The result is a smile which warms my heart for the day.

    What you give in kindness you get back doubled.

    You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always
    be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever
    underestimate the importance you can have because history has
    shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on
    a life of its own.

    I don't know what I would be doing without the company of RHP friends and forums. My life would feel very empty.

    @Torunn There would of course be the worlds of authors like Le Carré. I have only read The Night Manager but really enjoyed it so can you point me at the one I should go to next?

    I would recommend you start with 'The spy who came in from the cold' - it would introduce you to the work and operations of British Intelligence and George Smiley. And then you just go on reading... I envy you. 🙂

    You guys have to come up with your own stuff instead of quoting others all the time.

    I, for one, am not eloquent enough to say what I feel, in a way that would come close to what's been said.
