In Praise of Brotherly Beauty
With our show taking a course of pain and mistrust, my soul feels like being thrown into a meat grinder. Not the most relaxing place to be. So, I had to take care of it – by looking for some of the beauty I have loved the show for from the beginning. This is going to an utterly shallow thing, no philosophical, no psychological, no theological or whatever analysis, just mere, superficial eye candy, with a dash of quotes I happened to find.

Enjoy some memories of happier times on planet Winchester. 
‘Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.’
Khalil Gibran
‘The eye is the jewel of the body’
Henry David Thoreau
‘Those true eyes, too pure and too honest in aught to disguise. The sweet soul shining through them.’
Owen Meredith
‘Before you put on a thrown, make absolutely sure not smiles are available.’
Jim Beggs
‘A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.’
Charles Gordy
‘Keep your face always to the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.’
Walt Whitman
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.’
William Blake


 â€˜To love another person is to see the face of God.’
Victor Hugo

‘Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.’
Victor Hugo


 â€˜Against the assault of laughter, no one can stand.’
Mark Twain
‘A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.’
William Arthur Ward

‘Brothers don’t necessarily have to say anything to each other – they can sit in a room and be together and just be completely comfortable with each other. ‘
Leonardo di Caprio

‘If you wish to be brothers, let the arms fall from your hands. One cannot love while holding offensive arms.’
Gerald Brenan
Let’s hope we’ll find them again, those caring, loving, kind brothers we fell in love with…

Thank you Jas, really. We all needed this. Hopefully, our favorite brotherly affair will survive this too and will be stronger than ever.

Whenever I think about seasons 1-3, it makes me tear up in longing. Their lives were so "simple."

Thanks for this. :-)
# CitizenKane2 2010-11-03 21:48
Very nicely done ! Thank you. :-)
# BagginsDVM 2010-11-03 23:51
I have faith that we will see the brotherly love again.
Thank you!!!!

# Julie 2010-11-04 06:16
Jas, this is beautiful and just what I/we needed. Thanks for the wonderful choice of pictures too! ;-)
Just remember , `Keep the faith` Ju

Wonderful pictures Jas (and quotes). Ah, the simpler days as joelsteinlover said...perhaps a watching of episodes from Season 2 is in order. :-)

Tomorrow night is episode night (for many of us anyway) and I'm very excited. I remain firm in my thoughts of will not judge until I know the bigger picture but like a few have said elsewhere...thr ow me a bone here. Have Sam protect Dean's back, have Dean in fighting form and not beating himself up...just for an episode (or much of it?)

THank you so much, JAS! We needed this.
SPN will never be right for me again if the writers make the brothers turn against each other in the end.

(Aw, now I need a hug from Jared and Jensen. ) :oops:

Thanks Jasminka, this was nice to reflect on some happier moments and get away from the Doom and Gloom of late.
I think the last episode where I actually burst out laughing was Changing Channels. Since then I may of smiled or giggled but nothing more.

AndreaW, Joelsteinlover, CitizenKane2, BagginsDVM, Tigershire, Julie, Elle2, FMJemena and Karen,

I am so happy that you enjoyed this little ride down memory lane to the loving looks, the trusting hearts, the kind eyes... Let's keep up hope and trust that we'll get some of that in the near future!

Hugs, Jas

Oh my god Jas: Did I ever need that! It was beautiful and made the tears roll down my cheeks. I'm such a wussy wimp where these two are concerned. :sad:

How I long for those days to return and the love to jump off the screen and hit me like it used to.

Thank you so much Jas! :-)
# Suze 2010-11-04 18:42
Sweet. ;-)
# bookdal 2010-11-04 19:11
Beautiful quotes, Jas. Thank you.
# boobula 2010-11-04 20:47
Ahh Jas, you always seem to come up with the perfect things to say at the perfect time. My heart is happy once again.

I always keep the faith in our show, sometimes it does waver a bit though. Beautiful quotes and lovely pictures. Who could ask for more. The brothers are why I started watching and why I will keep watching til the end.

Even through all the ups and downs. I still count the days to the new episodes, and look forward to coming here to the WFB and checking out all the great insights and discussions. Always gives me food for thought. Thanks everyone.
# Ardeospina 2010-11-04 22:05
D'awww, brothers! Very nice, and thanks for making that, Jas.
# Jasminka 2010-11-05 15:38
Bevie, Dany, Suze, bookdal, boobula and Flamey - I am so in your debt for enjoying going through this piece as I enjoyed putting it together!

We sometimes need to be reminded of the currents of brotherly love that is still there and that we will find again... In that I trust...

Take care, Jas
# Jasminka 2010-11-06 04:09
Hey, Leslie92708, we're so gonna have a party, then! Oh, yes! I'm already stocking up on chocolate, booze and tissues for the happy tears...

We-live-in-hope, Jas
# nancyL 2010-11-06 16:10
Jas, that was like a breath of fresh air :D

It is good to remember the good old days, when Sam and Dean liked being in each other's company. Before the demons and angels started f**king with them.
Even though, after this week I am optimistic that we will get the brotherly love back. (probably after more angst).
# Jasminka 2010-11-07 10:50
Sajah and nancyL, thanks a lot, and well, there is hope, right?!

Let's just go on hoping and loving the show. It's gonna be more fun that way...

Cheers! Jas
