Great quotes Judy! We have had a rough night here with storm after storm after storm. Daisy is a nervous wreck.

The George Eliot one reminds me of a book I'm reading which I think you would appreciate: The Shack by William Paul Young. I won't be around for ten days or so. Take care:)

I love that George Crane quote. It should be posted high in every school, on every corner and on every billboard!

I hate the language we so often hear round about us!

My mother always said that profanity was the sign of a poor vocabulary. I am always impressed with comedians or writers who don't need shock value to be entertaining.
However, when you smack your toe on the dresser leg at 3 AM, it can be very soothing.

I've always thought you are what you think. I think I thought that. Just kidding. Love the quotes. (I'm taking a temporary or not leave of absence except for reading you.)

Still kickin', I see.

I like the first quote a lot. No surprise there, I'm sure.

Love that Crane quote!

I couldn't help but think of the right wing Christians when I read that last quote. Mercy is sadly lacking in their rigid thinking.

Thank you for posting those words of wisdom.
