Princess Cliparts

The Definition of Love

My love is of a birth as rare
As 'tis for object strange and high:
It was begotten by Despair
Upon Impossibility.

Magnanimous Despair alone
Could show me so divine a thing,
Where feeble Hope could ne'er have flown
But vainly flapped its tinsel wing.

And yet I quickly might arrive
Where my extended soul is fixed,
But Fate does iron wedges drive,
And always crowds itself betwixt.

For Fate with jealous eye does see
Two perfect loves; nor lets them close:
Their union would her ruin be,
And her tyrannic pow'r depose.

And therefore her decrees of steel
Us and the distant poles have placed
(Though Love's whole world on us doth wheel)
Not by themselves to be embraced.

Unless the giddy heaven fall,
And earth some new convulsion tear;
And, us to join, the world should all
Be cramped into a planishpere.

As lines so loves oblique may well
Themselves in every angle greet:
But ours so truly parallel,
Though infinite can never meet.

Therefore the love which us doth bind,
But Fate so enviously debars,
Is the conjunction of the mind,
And opposition of the stars.

An Instrument of Peace

Lord, make me a channel of your peace:

where there is hatred,
may I bring love;
where ther is wrong,
may I bring the spirit of forgiveness,
where there is discord,
may I bring harmony;
where there is error,
may I bring truth;

where there is doubt,
may I bring hope;
where there are shadows,
may I bring light;
where there is sadness,
may I bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
rather to understand than to be understood;
rather to love than to be loved,
for it is in forgetting myself that I find:
It is by forgiving that I am forgiven.

~ Francis of Assisi

Reasons For Gambling Online

Years ago, gamblers only had two choices, which is either to go to the nearest gambling town like Las Vegas or Atlantic City or stay right where they were and wager locally through some illicit sources. Today, gambling has become an almost international obsession appearing commonly in in every state and nations, with the opening of casinos, betting parlors, card rooms, sports book, high-stakes bingo rooms and even online games like online Poker or Paradise Poker.

As many people are trying out online games such as Pacific Poker that they may not otherwise have played in a traditional setting, many sites offer extensive how-to-sections designed to teach players the optimal strategies for a wide variety of games. In some cases, players can simultaneously gamble and review charts/strategies found in special tutorial sections of the site. While these tips may not quite replace practice and years of experience, they can serve as excellent references to help players increase their chance for success.

With poker gaming taking center stage of late, it is no mystery that the big dogs in the industry offer players a never-ending stream of exciting tournament action. But poker is not the only game that boasts big tournaments online. Just about every popular game has a tournament presence somewhere on the internet!

Other good reasons for gambling online is freedom and convenient of access. No longer are gamblers at the mercy of location. Gamblers can play anytime, anywhere, as long as they have internet access. Not only do online players save a lot of hassles of travel and check-in to airports and so on, they also minimise expenses. Funds which were once spent on airline tickets, cars rentals and hotel rooms can now be used to play online! In addition, you can play any online games at your own pace. You can play Poker Stars with less pressure. You can slowly or relaxedly, all according to your own pace.
