[For Years, All We Do Is Feed. We Don't Control What Our Parents Feed Us For Dinner, We Don't Control What They Read To Us (or Don't Read To Us) Or What They Let Us Watch. We Are Like Jars Of Wet Clay, And We Are Loaded Full With Every Kind Of Tale—films; Books; TV Shows; Stories From Friends, Parents, Grandparents. And As We Dry, We Take The Shape Of What Has Been Dumped Inside Of Us.]

"I crawled back to bed, knowing I was done for. Hours later, the phone in our room started ringing. It was George. He was not happy."Room 312. Now!" he shouted.Bouldy got up. I tried to pull myself together, splashing my face with water and hauling on my shorts and flip flops. It was a lovely day outside, the sun was scorching hot and there wasnt a cloud in the sky, but it might as well have been a pissing wet morning in St Albans for all I cared.

Quotes About Rhymes

"The only artists I have ever known who are personally delightful are bad artists. Good artists exist simply in what they make, and consequently are perfectly uninteresting in what they are. A great poet, a really great poet, is the most unpoetical of all creatures. But inferior poets are absolutely fascinating. The worse their rhymes are, the more picturesque they look. The mere fact of having published a book of second-rate sonnets makes a man quite irresistible. He lives the poetry that he cannot write. The others write the poetry that they dare not realize." - Author: Oscar Wilde
