Grow up

We are born charming, fresh and spontaneous and must be civilized before we are fit to participate in society.

H.J.S. Smith

All said and done

All said and done,

I hold my tongue as you're walking away.
So goodbye comes -
oh, I don't want to make it difficult
but nothing's easy
when there's nothing left to say.

Peter Hammill

Think of me with kindness
