Charles Darwin
“If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.”

Shel Silverstein
“If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
If youre a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!

Shel Silverstein

There would always be a woman in the background--a mother, a girlfriend, a wife--who would ensure that those needs would be met.”
Alexander McCall Smith, In the Company of Cheerful Ladies

“History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are. ”
