Cowper wrote, “Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.”
So many have no thought of life except what they will eat, what they will wear,
and how they can entertain themselves. And then we come on someone who has the

We meet many different kinds of people. Some we love and some we like and love,
which is a terrible difference. It is to find a wholeness or a part of our lost
self in someone else. It isn’t that they are so much like us or that we believe
the way they do, but that they communicate, and it is this rare communication
that respects the differences between peoples.
