Poetry Friday

Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar.

Black Friday

First, a word of explanation, I've been sick with a killer cold, and then Thanksgiving came along, thus the paucity of quotes this week!

On this, the biggest shopping day of the season (year?), I offer you:

George Washington had a vision for this country. Was it three days of uninterrupted shopping?

~ Jeff Melvoin ~

Don't think about it for too long--it'll make you depressed.

Sunday's Kat Kwote on a Monday!

Sorry, I'm a little late with this, yesterday I thought it would be easier just to die. It's amazing what a baby I become when I'm sick. And it's nothing but a cold! (That's the scary part!)

Here's the Kat Kwote:

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.

~ Pablo Picasso ~

Turkey Day's A Comin'

"You Want What?"

Okay, so the vet hands you a little plastic collection cup filled with tiny black pellets, and tells you to get a urine sample from the cat. Is he insane?

The Responsibility is Ours

If we want principled, courageous elected officials, we need to be principled, courageous, and tenacious ourselves. History has demonstrated that our elected officials are not the leaders--the leadership has to come from us. If we don't insist, if we don't persist, then we are not living up to our responsibilities as citizens in a democracy--and our responsibilities as moral human beings.

~ Ross C. "Rocky" Anderson, Mayor of Salt Lake City, UT ~
