Constant dripping wears away the stone
When children stand still they have done some ill

Look upon your chastening as God's chariots sent to carry your soul into the high places of spiritual achievement.

The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things
A good friend is my nearest relation.

Times change. The farmer's daughter now tells jokes about the traveling salesman.

What we need is not the will to believe, but the wish to find out.
The ambitious are forever followed by adulation for they receive the most pleasure from flattery.

I am convinced that one of the biggest factors in success is the courage to undertake something.

I'm all but considering starting a LJ-Community for Junk E-Mail Gems. I bet I, Allegedly, and Sandchigger could fill up the first hundred posts.

In other news, I only -just- realized that the Cowboy Junkies song, "Horse in the Country" isn't about a horse but instead about a fellow that the main character is involved with. Took about a decade, but I eventually got it.
