The brain is deeper than the sea,    For, hold them, blue to blue, The one the other will absorb,    As sponges, buckets do. The brain is just the weight of God,    For, lift them, pound for pound, And they will differ, if they do,    As syllable from sound."

11. "Childhood is a time for pretending and trying on maturity to see if it fits or hangs baggy, tastes good or bitter, smells nice or fills your lungs with smoke that makes you cough. It's sharing licks on the same sucker with your best friend before you discover germs. It's not knowing how much a house cost, and caring less. It's going to bed in the summer with dirty feet on clean sheets. It's thinking anyone over fifteen is 'ancient'. It's absorbing ideas, knowledge, and people like a giant sponge. Childhood is where 'competition' is a baseball game and 'responsibility' is a paper route."
Author: Erma Bombeck

It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.(writing about US President Warren G. Harding)"
Author: H.L. Mencken

Death, he supposed, was the punch line."

He kicked a foot up and propped it on the console between the two front seats. "Sure, in my SpongeBob SquarePants lunch box. I have the thermos, too," Morrison shot right back. Zane kept his mouth shut, eyes moving between the two men, and occasionally back to the driver, who was casually paying attention. Ty stared at the kid and narrowed his eyes further. "Spongewhat?" he asked flatly. Zane didn't even try to hold back the chuckle when Morrison looked at Ty like he'd lost his mind. "Spongewha … you're yanking my chain, aren't you?" Morrison said. "Henny, he's yanking my chain." "Yeah, well, that's what you getting for waving it in his face," the driver answered reasonably. "What the hell is a SpongeBob?" Ty asked Zane quietly in the backseat."

Can one pass oneself the sponge wet with vinegar from a reed?)"

Yesterday, having at last been overwhelmed by the fear and rumour that swept the town, she had taken herself off to her mother's house in Hampstead, leaving her husband to soldier on alone. When he had last seen his wife, Elliot Norther noticed that she had been putting the finishing touches to an impressive, triple-tiered wedding cake, beating a batch of royal icing into a sickly paste."

Today's Quote

He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him."
