[Neutrinos, They Are Very Small.They Have No Charge And Have No MassAnd Do Not Interact At All.The Earth Is Just A Silly BallTo Them, Through Which They Simply Pass,Like Dustmaids Down A Drafty HallOr Photons Through A Sheet Of Glass.They Snub The Most Exquisite Gas,Ignore The Most Substantial Wall,Cold Shoulder Steel And Sounding Brass,Insult The Stallion In His Stall,And, Scorning Barriers Of Class,Infiltrate You And Me. Like TallAnd Painless Guillotines They FallDown Through Our Heads Into The Grass.At Night, They Enter At NepalAnd Pierce The Lover And His LassFrom Underneath The Bed—you CallIt Wonderful; I Call It Crass.]

Jennings Michael Burch Quotes

"Sister, why do you do that?""Do what?""Cage the animals at night?""Well..." She looked up and out through the barred window before answering me."We dont want to, Jennings, but we have to. You see, the animals that are given to us we have to take care of. If we didnt cage them up in one place, we might lose them, they might get hurt or damaged. Its not the best thing, but its the only way we have to take care of them.""But if somebody loved one them," I asked, "wouldnt it be a good idea to let them have one? To keep, I mean?""Yes, it would be. But not everyone would love them and take care of them as you would. I wish I could give them all away tomorrow." She looked at me. There were tears in her eyes. "But I cant. My heart would break if I saw just one of those animals lying by the wayside uncared for, unloved. No, Jennings. Its better if we keep them together."

Quotes About Marriage Restoration

"I read old novels. The reason is simple: I prefer proper endings.

They should come after adventures, perils, dangers and dilemmas, and wind everything up nice and neatly. Endings like this are to be found more commonly in old novels than new ones, so I read old novels." - Author: Diane Setterfield
