[Also Ist Mein Sohn Ein Simpel.'In Einer Hinsicht. Aber Der Größte Teil Der Menschheit Ist So. Weil Es Sonst Zu Schwer Zu Ertragen Ist, Mensch Zu Sein. Im Gegensatz Zu Den Tieren Wissen Wir Zu Viel. Sie, Die Anderen Tiere, Wissen Gerade Genug, Um Ihren Job Zu Machen Und Zu Sterben. Um Zu Essen, Zu Schlafen, Zu Vögeln, Babys Zu Kriegen Und Zu Sterben.]

Quotes About Life In The Suburbs

"this was the way life should be. Family working, sharing, and living together with a sense of belonging and purpose, to be needed and wanted and loved by family and friends, to be part of a community that knows and helps one another. Not with families spread all about, seeing each other only once in a while, living in crowded suburbs and cities where neighbors seldom speak to one another and rarely help one another. A life spent constantly running around, hither and yon, all the time coming and going, eating and living on the run, filling their lives with things such as ball games and so on, the whole time missing out on the most important things in life; God, family, friends." - Author: Mike Foster

Quotes About Lightning Bolts

I erupted in the form of a smoking giant, did a few lightning bolts, and bent to ask him his desire. Poor old boy had dropped dead of a heart attack. There should be a moral there, but for the life of me I cant see one." - Author: Jonathan Stroud
