Martin Luther King Jr.

"You are repsonsible for what you say and for what you do not say."


Long Hair

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car. 
His father said he'd make a deal with his son: “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible, and get your hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car.” 
The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it. 
After about six weeks his father said, “Son, you've brought your gradesup and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm disappointed you haven't had your hair cut.” 
The boy said, “You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair ~ and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.” 
“Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?”


Charles M. Schultz 

"Love is all you need, but a little chocolate along the way never hurt anyone." 



"It's not our abilities that show what we truly are. It's our choice."


Using What We Have

"Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can." 



Walt Whitman

"Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and the shadows will always be behind you."



"No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness."


The Senses 

It's a proven fact that men can read smaller print than women; women can hear better. 



No is a complete sentence. It does not require justification or explanation.



Children are like farts; you don't mind your own but other people's are unbearable.



Pull your grudge up by the root so that it does not start growing in your heart again.


Friday the 13th

I always seem to look forward to this day. I don't know why that is. I think it's because I like looking for people expressing their silly superstitions.



Being a Genius 

"Everyone is a genius, but if you expect a fish to climb a tree then it will spend its whole life believing that its stupid."


The Plan

If plan A dosn't work, stay cool. There are 25 more letters. 


Miles Kington

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.


Trying Your Best

Never stop trying to do your best just becasue someone didn't give you the credit you deserve.


Cheryl Strayed

"I write to find what I have to say. I edit to figure out how to say it right." 


Rayne Hall

"Adopting a shelter case is one orf the best decision I've made in my life."


The New High School Teacher

A former Marine took a new job as a high school teacher. Just before the school year started, he injured his back and was required towear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body.  Fortunately, thecast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable.

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart-aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk.  When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.


Anne Frank

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."


William Blake 

"What is now proved was once only imagined."


Genesis 2:7

"And the Lord God formed man of the dust on the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul."
