You can go to extremes with impossible schemes.
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams.
And life gets more exciting with each passing day.
And love is either in your heart, or on it's way.

Don't you know that it's worth every treasure on earth
To be young at heart.

~ Carolyn Leigh

“There is something about saying, 'We always do this,' which helps keep the years together. Time is such an elusive thing that if we keep on meaning to do something interesting, but never do it, year would follow year with no special thoughtfulness being expressed in making gifts, surprises, charming table settings, and familiar, favorite food. Tradition is a good gift intended to guard the best gifts.” Edith Schaeffer

Said by me of Felix Zollicoffer upon mistakenly shot and killed upon riding into a Union camp. "oh shit"!!!
Zollicoffer Park marks the site of the fiercest fighting in the Battle of Mill Springs. The park is named for Confederate Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer. It was here that Zollicoffer rode forward to speak with what he mistakenly thought were his own troops. As a result of his mistake, Zollicoffer was shot and killed.

“Man is a child of his time. If he is bad, his contemporaries are to blame.”

“Who poisoned Socrates, burned Joan of Arc, crucified Christ, buried Mohammed in camel remains? Crowd. So the crowd has no mind. Manage to direct her to the path of truth."

"...when they used to tell me I would shorten my life ten years by smoking, they little knew the devotee they were wasting their puerile word upon -- they little knew how trivial and valueless I would regard a decade that had no smoking in it!"

"As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep and never to refrain when awake"

Mark Twain

If a man finds it within himself to live without others, he can live walled up and quiet for a long time. But then, he may make the next discovery, or life makes it upon him—that he cannot—and he grows a rage for connection, communication, personal fact, knowledge of the company he was born to.
Fathers by Herbert Gold
