Seasons and Remembering Rodney

There is an appointed time for everything.
And there is a time for every event under heaven --

A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to love ...

Remember the rhythym of the seasons and of Life.
Such a one as you who appears so beautiful, wise, and centered need not worry.
Your wishes shall be granted if they be heartfelt and you will know your soulmate when you meet him or her.
Look beyond appearances because what is inside is ageless and beautiful and truthful.
Let your heart and your intuition be your guide.
Never give up your dreams.

He fought depression most of his life and like Lincoln was better for it. He certainly made people laugh. He never gave up his dreams either. Here's the rest of his Carson Show appearance
