"History does not repeat itself…but it does rhyme."
- My professor in class today.
"Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries"
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, from her poem “Aurora’s Light”
I have always adored this quote.
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
