Some quotes to ponder... remember... or forget :)

I am reading one of the half a tonne of books I own....
Just because I can read.... LOL
And I am reading
spits and spurts of bits n pieces of rubbish and rubies....
here is a few:

An athiest is a man who has no invisible means of support. John Buchan

If grass can grow through cement, love can find you at every time in your life. Cher

When it comes, will it come without warning
Just as I am picking my nose?
Will it knock on my door in the morning,
or tread in the bus on my toes?
Will its greeting be courteous or rough?
Will it alter my life altogether?
O tell me the truth about love. W. H. Auden

There are times when parenthood seems nothing but feeding the mouth that bites you. Peter De Vries
