Catch phrase [2]

All I carry with me ~

Everything flows, everything changes ~

This expression provides a constant, continuous variability of absolutely all things.

A stitch ~

This expression does not have nothing to do with the bird. It is about an old military weapons battering. There I will give that one who was so named (a stitch) - very poor and the Pauper.

The Sympathy Seeker ~
