"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)

Smile by Charlie Chaplin, Performed by KokoKaina
I love her version of this song. She writes:
"This is an absolutely lovely song. Written by Charlie Chaplin, recorded by Nat King Cole.
"I gave the video a 'silent movie feel'. I hope you enjoy my rendition of it. Not my best of it, i was tired but i suppose that's just an excuse eh? Haha."
Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though it's breaking Though there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by If you smile through your fears and sorrows Smile and maybe tomorrow You'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness Hide every trace of sadness Although a tear may be ever so near That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying? You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile
