Polls, friends, art museums & the green
Politics is the art
of preventing people from sticking their noses in things that are properly their business.
~ Paul Valery
The art and science of a spring break road trip
It's a mad, mad ,mad ,mad man's world,
but the ladies invaded it anyway,
and gave Does and Bucks new meaning.
Friends make us fuller.
When friends leave, their light stays behind.
It is like the blue sea
that supports the white breakers
that come and go.
No matter how far I go
I long to return and be with friends.
It is never the same fire I left,
but beneath it are the ashes
of all our meetings that have gone before.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;
it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one
when you discover that someone else believes in you
and is willing to trust you with a friendship.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The friendships we develop
determine the quality of our own souls.
Joan Chittister, OSB
Remember the great adversity of art or anything else
is a hurried life.
Robert James Waller
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
I have tried prudent planning long enough.
(Now thats a good way to approach Lent.)
