fill their lives with sweetness


 Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness
 sealed up until your friends are dead. 
Fill their lives with sweetness, speak cheering words
 while their ears can hear, 
and while their hearts can be thrilled
 and made happier by them. 
~ William Congreve
