Favorite Quote:
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. –Anatole France.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. –Josh Billings

Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.- George Carlin

A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. —Franklin D. Roosevelt

Never lose. Either win, or learn. - Me


People are like leaves

Some are happy and light

But others sag heavily

Some are brave and bold with color

And others are dead and brown

And every leaf falls,

down,

down,

down,

one

by

one

 

Each one struggles to be most colorful, and some succeed; others don't

 

Some get soiled; some rot

Others; they blow in the wind and get lost

But some; they're triumphant, and in the end, they're remembered for their great beauty and vibrant color

This is what I have to say to all my wicked Papa's side relatives...The thing is, they simply don't exist...So, how to tell them...Only the good paternal relatives of mine are still living, others (the indecent savages from my Papa's side) are Dead...Dead ACCORDING TO ME!!!
