Here’s to a long life and a happy one,
A quick death and an easy one,
A good girl and an honest one,
A cold pint and another one.
"So, friends, every day do something that won’t compute…Give your approval to all you cannot understand…Ask the questions that have no answers. Put your faith in two inches of humus that will build under the trees every thousand years…Laugh. Be joyful though you have considered all the facts….Practice resurrection."
- Wendell Berry, The Country of Marriage
"U iz kind, U iz smart, U iz important."
- Theodore Roosevelt, from a Bullmoose speech in 1913
"Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion."
