It takes strength...

It's so easy to laugh 
It’s so easy to hate 
It takes strength to be gentle and kind
In the 18th and 19th centuries, wealthy British and European lovers exchanged eye miniatures,
love tokens that captured the gaze of the recipients significant other. They were worn on the lapel as to be close to the heart.
Less than 1,000 are thought to exist, often both the owner of the piece and the subject within it are never identified.

It's worth the effort to be gentle and kind. Always.
(I love these little miniatures. So personal.)
