smart to engage in    

politics are punished

by being governed    

by those who are      

dumber.

"Don't be afraid of  

your worst times.   

If you learn

you'll look back      

on them                   

as the best times.

I am so glad I found this!

I'd like to share this:

 

March on. Do not tarry.

To go forward is to move toward perfection.

March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path. 

 

Khalil Gibran

He was seeing the enormity of the smallness of the enemy who was destroying the world. He felt as if, after a journey of years through a landscape of devastation, past the ruins of great factories, the wrecks of powerful engines, the bodies of invincible men, he had come upon the despoiler, expecting to find a giant—and had found a rat eager to scurry for cover at the first sound of a human step. If this is what has beaten us, he thought, the guilt is ours.

I asked an old man:

 

Which is more important?

To love or to be loved?

 

 

Old man replied:

 

Which is more important to a bird?

The left wing or the right wing?

" He who would           

learn to fly one day

must first learn      

to stand                   

and walk                 

and run                   

and climb                

and dance;             

one cannot fly        

into flying."

"Watch the sunrise at least        

once a year, put a lot of         

marshmallows in your hot    

chocolate, lie on your back   

and look at the stars, never  

buy a coffee table you can't  

put your feet on, never pass 

up a chance to jump on a     

trampoline, don't overlook   

life's small joys while           

searching for the big ones."

"When I was 5 years old,

my mother always told me

that happiness was the key

to life. When I went to

school, they asked me

what I wanted to be when

I grew up. I wrote down

'happy'. They told me I didn't

understand the

assignment, and I told them

they didn't understand life".

We're all so worried

that people are

watching and

judging us, but in

reality, they're too

busy worrying about

the same thing.

      From Roommates

       

      “You can’t ask a man for his number when he’s passing around the meat,” he said then winked, “you have to wait until he’s passing out the chocolate.”
      “Why did I become friends with you?”  I asked rolling my eyes.   “To get your head out of your fucking ass, Will."
      “I’m meeting billionaires in a few fucking hours,” he said turning to look at me, “I’ll be lucky if I don’t shit my pants.”
      "I don't feel as free as you do."
      "If you're unwilling to fix this, then you're just a damn distraction."
      "It would have rocked living here," Brett commented. "I'd slide down the stair railing at least five times a day."
      “Relationships aren’t ruined by spilled milk,” I said and she smiled.
      “Now Lucinda, I don’t want to look at our portrait and see sweat or flushed looks, we want to look humble, refreshed, and above all happy.”
      “You can leave clothes on the ground they won’t walk away,” he said laughing slightly.
      “Well maybe you’ll meet someone at the anniversary party,” she said, “I’ve invited all of your sister’s classmates for a reason.”  - “Oh, I thought it was so Kathryn could shove her new boobs into their faces.”
      “Well breakfasts should have more live shows,” Brett said leaning back in his chair and stretching.

      Rules:
      No googling No wiki Author and book must be answered before moving on.   The person who answers the question/s correctly must pose the next question. The poster can ask an additional question for 1 point only. Only three clues allowed. If no winner after third clue, the poster must give answer and proceed to next question. 6 points per correct answer. 1st clue answer = 5 points. 2nd Clue answer = 3 points. 3rd Clue answer = 1 point. If no answer after 1 week = 5 days then post answer and another question. Posters of questions earn 3 points per question. If the question is unanswered, the poster of that question scores an extra 3 points. Please keep a tally of your own points. All points are to be reflected in each post. See my example below. Definition of classics: a book considered as being exemplary or noteworthy for its literary value as listed by foreign and Western canons or thru a reader's own opinion. You may quote foreign classics translated into English. i.e., The Unbearable Lightness of Being etc.  There are hundreds. You may quote any novel awarded  with a prize, Nobel Prize etc. There are numerous other prizes that you can mention as a further question or in a clue. You may quote modern classics. i.e, Hemingway, Faulkner, Knowles, Hollinghurst, Edmund White, Kramer and so forth, there are hundreds.   You may quote Children's Classics.  All genres are allowed.  
      I will start off hehehe:

      "No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart."
      Author and book please.
      Additional question for 1 point: In which year did the author die?
