Never ask, “Who is my real friend?”
Ask, “Am I a real friend to somebody?”

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

Although most moons in our solar system are named after figures in Greek and Roman mythology, Uranus’s moons get their names from English literature. 25 of the 27 are named after Shakespeare characters, with the majority of those taking their names from “The Tempest.”
The remaining two, Belinda and Umbriel, are named after characters invented by 18th-century English poet Alexander Pope. (One moon, Ariel, has a name that appears in both authors’ work.) Ophelia and Cordelia are known as “shepherd moons.”
They keep Uranus’s brightest ring intact by corralling its materials with their gravitational pull.
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone……“
