From where I sit... By Cindy Higby
“All good things are wild and free.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Cats were made to disprove the dogma that all things were created to serve man. ~ Paul Gray
“New rule: Tulips aren’t flowers. They’re some kind of gay onion.” ~ Bill Maher
In the midst of artistic and musical creating, a person is raised to another level of consciousness that doesnâ€™t have that much to do with everyday thinking. Imagine life before there was words and you have this unbelievable need to express how you feel. ~ Charlie Haden
“Oh, you hate your
job? Why didn’t you say so?
support group for
that. It’s called
EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.”
~ Drew Carey
“When Mom found my diaphragm, I told her it was a bathing cap for my cat.” ~ Liz Winston
Excuse me while I kiss the sky. ~Jimi Hendrix
Like the herd animals we are, we sniff warily at the strange ones among us.
When we lose the right to be different, we lose the right to be free.
“Most of life is routine - dull and grubby, but routine is the momentum that keeps a man going. If you wait for inspiration you’ll be standing on the corner after the parade is a mile down the street.” ~ Ben Nicholas
Anyone acquainted with Ireland knows that the morning of St. Patrickâ€™s Day consists of the night of the 17th of March flavored strongly with the morning of the 18th. ~ Unknown Irishman
The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence. Nature never wears a mean appearance. Neither does the wisest man extort her secret, and lose his curiosity by finding out all her perfection. Nature never became a toy to a wise spirit. The flowers, the animals, the mountains, reflected the wisdom of his best hour, as much as they had delighted the simplicity of his childhood. But no-one owns the landscape. There is a property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all the parts, that is, the poet.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
