The greatest compliment that was ever paid me was when one asked me what I thought, and attended to my answer.
**Henry David Thoreau
Sometimes in the most tragic situation, something just profoundly funny happens.
**David Hyde Pierce
“The World stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.”
**David Starr Jordan
“Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace, the celebration of work and the simple life… a true folk-festival that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year – and the deep, deep connection of all these things with God.”
“If a man does not keep pact with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”
–Henry David Thoreau
One of my favorite quotes. 🙂
“I didn’t particularly feel like being arrested, so I argued with the soldiers a bit. Several of them died during the argument – those things happen once in a while. Unfortunately, one of the casualties was Taur Urgas’ oldest son. [he] took it personally. He’s very narrow-minded sometimes.”
