“My new favorite quote is, "Feed kids Cokes and french fries and you get an obesity crisis. Feed them mental junk food and you get non-readers and poor thinkers.”

“Some people like danger and adventure, some like to be free of civilization, and some like to live by their wits. It was those special people who headed west.”
Joy Hakim, Making Thirteen Colonies: 1600-1740 A History of US

“Elizabeth Cady read the nation's great Declaration, and it bothered her. All men are created equal, it said. But what about women?”
