Line(s) of the Day #ListenToYourHeart

Roxette listen to your heart

I know there’s something in the wake of your smile.
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yeah.
You’ve built a love but that love falls apart.
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark.

Taken from the American chart topper song Listen to your Heart by the Swedish band Roxette, from their second studio album Look Sharp (1989).

A tale of two cities

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

Taken from the novel ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickens (1859)
