This great line was on Life Season 1, Episode 2 “Tear Asunder”

Revenge is a poison meant for others that we end up swallowing ourselves
Vengeance is a dark light that blinds all who seek it
The untroubled soul knows there is no justice in revenge
The untroubled soul knows that to seek vengeance is to seek destruction.

***************************

This Lovely Poem was in Despearte Housewives Season 4 Episode 80 “Welcome to Kanagawa”

An early version, printed by others on postcards:

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
Her later confirmed version:

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye

The thing with addiction is, it never ends well. Because eventually whatever it was that was getting us high stops feeling good and starts to hurt.

Still, they say you don’t kick the habit until you hit rock bottom. But how do you know when you are there?

Because no matter how badly the thing is hurting you, sometimes letting go hurts even worse.

If something anticipated arrives too late it finds us numb, wrung out from waiting, and we feel – nothing at all. The best things arrive on time.
