RE: favorite quotes
"And though I may not
know the answers
I can finally say I am free
And if the questions
led me here,then
I am who I was born to be."

Audra Mae wrote this song with Susan Boyle in mind.

And then this from Scarlett O'Hara:

"As God is my witness, as God is my witness they're not going to lick me. I'm going to live through this and when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!"

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"What I must do, is all that concerns me, not what the people think."

And from my father:

"Well....it's a deep subject."

But, my all time favorite is from the ancient wise man in "The High Road To China."

"The Ox is slow, but the Earth is patient."

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” (Epicurus) Consider

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
