I don't care how much a man may consider himself a failure, I believe in him, for he can change the thing that is wrong in his life anytime he is prepared and ready to do it. Whenever he develops the desire, he can take away from his life the thing that is defeating it. The capacity for reformation and change lies within."

    What I Have To Give You
    To be honest with you,
    I do not have the words to make you feel better -

    But I do have arms to give you a hug -
    I have ears to listen to anything
    you want to talk about -

    I have eyes to see the pain you are going through -
    I have feet, to walk to you
    the minute you need me -

    And I have a heart -
    a heart that is aching to see you smile again.
