    “Oh, it's delightful to have ambitions. I'm so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them-- that's the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.”
    ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

    How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young.
    It will never be older than this particular day of June...If it were only the other way! If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old! For that..for that I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give! I would give my soul for that!

    "Inside the snow globe on my father’s desk, there was a penguin wearing a red-and-white-striped scarf. When I was little my father would pull me into his lap and reach for the snow globe. He would turn it over, letting all the snow collect on the top, then quickly invert it. The two of us watched the snow fall gently around the penguin. The penguin was alone in there, I thought, and I worried for him. When I told my father this, he said, “Don’t worry, Susie; he has a nice life. He’s trapped in a perfect world.”

    '.......for she had read several nice little histories about children who had got burnt and eaten up by wild beasts and another unpleasant things, all because they would not remember the simple rules their friends had taught them: such as, that a red-hot poker will burn you if you hold it too long, and that if you cut your finger very deeply with a knife, it usually bleeds; and she had never forgotten that, if you drink much from a bottle marked 'poison' it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.'

    And once she remembered trying to box her own ears for having cheated herself in a game of croquet she was playing against herself, for this curious child was very fond of pretending to be two people. :p

    She goes out to hang the windchime
    in her nightie and her work boots.
    It’s six-thirty in the morning
    and she’s standing on the plastic ice chest
    tiptoe to reach the crossbeam of the porch,

    windchime in her left hand,
    hammer in her right, the nail
    gripped tight between her teeth
    but nothing happens next because
    she’s trying to figure out
    how to switch,

    She must have been standing in the kitchen,
    coffee in her hand, asleep,
    when she heard it—the wind blowing
    through the sound the windchime
    wasn’t making
    because it wasn’t there.

    No one, including me, especially anymore believes
    till death do us part,
    but I can see what I would miss in leaving—
    the way her ankles go into the work boots
    as she stands upon the ice chest;
    the problem scrunched into her forehead;
    the little kissable mouth
    with the nail in it.

    -Tis so, said the Duchess: and the moral of that is - Oh 'tis live, 'tis love, that makes the world go round!
    -Somebodey said, Alice whispered, that it's done by everybody minding their own business!
    -Ah, well! It mwans much the same thing, said the Suchess, digging her sharp little chin into Alice's shoulder as she added, and the moral of that is - Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of themselves.
    -How fond she is of finding morals in things! - Alice thought to herself.
    -I dare say you're wondering why I don't put my arm round your waist, the Duchess said after a pause, the reason is, that I'm doubtful about the temper of your flamingo. Shall I try the experiment?
    -He might bite, Alice cautiously replied, not feeling at all anxious to have the experiment tried.
    -Very true, said the Duchess: flamingos and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is - Birds of a feather flock together.
    -Only mustard isn't a bird, Alice remarked.
    -Right, as usual, said the Duchess, what a clear way you have of putting things!
    -It's a mineral, I think, said Alice.
    -Of course it is, said the Duchess, who seemed ready to agree to everything that Alice said; there's a large mustard mine near here. And the moral of that is - The more there is of mine, the less there is of yours.
    -Oh I know! - exclaimed Alice, who had not attended to this last remark, - it's a vegetable. It doesn't look like one, but it is.
    -I quite agree with you, said the Duchess, and the moral of that is - Be what you would seem to be, - or if you'd like it put more simply - Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.
    -I think I should understand that better, Alice said very politely, if I had it written down: but I can't quite follow it as you say it.
    -That's nothing to what I could say if I chose, the Duchess replied, in a pleased tone.
    -Pray don't trouble yourself to say it any longer than that, said Alice.
    -Oh, don' t talk about trouble! - said the Duchess, - I make you a present of everything I've said as yet.
    -A cheap sort of present! - thought Alice. - I'm glad they don't give birthday presents like that.

    -I know what you're thinking about, said Tweedledum: but it isn't so, nohow.
    -Contrariwise, continued Tweedledee, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

    The world is a beautiful place
    to be born into
    if you don't mind happiness
    not always being
    so very much fun
    if you don't mind a touch of hell
    now and then
    just when everything is fine
    because even in heaven
    they don't sing
    all the time

    The world is a beautiful place
    to be born into
    if you don't mind some people dying
    all the time
    or maybe only starving
    some of the time
    which isn't half bad
    if it isn't you

    Oh the world is a beautiful place
    to be born into
    if you don't much mind
    a few dead minds
    in the higher places
    or a bomb or two
    now and then
    in your upturned faces
    or such other improprieties
    as our Name Brand society
    is prey to
    with its men of distinction
    and its men of extinction
    and its priests
    and other patrolmen

    and its various segregations
    and congressional investigations
    and other constipations
    that our fool flesh
    is heir to

    Yes the world is the best place of all
    for a lot of such things as
    making the fun scene
    and making the love scene
    and making the sad scene
    and singing low songs and having inspirations
    and walking around
    looking at everything
    and smelling flowers
    and goosing statues
    and even thinking
    and kissing people and
    making babies and wearing pants
    and waving hats and
    dancing
    and going swimming in rivers
    on picnics
    in the middle of the summer
    and just generally
    'living it up'
    Yes
    but then right in the middle of it
    comes the smiling

    A boat beneath a sunny sky,
    Lingering onward dreamily
    In an evening of July-

    Children three that nestle near,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Pleased a simple tale to hear-

    Long has paled that sunny sky:
    Echoes fade and memories die.
    Autumn frosts have slain July.

    Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
    Alice moving under skies
    Never seen by waking eyes.

    Children yet, the tale to hear,
    Eager eye and willing ear
    Lovingly shall nestle near.

    In a Wonderland they lie,
    Dreaming as the days go by,
    Dreaming as the summers die:

    Ever drifting down the stream-
    Lingering in the golden gleam-
    Life, what is it but a dream?

    Seahorses prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together. They're on of the rare monogamous animals , and engage in an eight-hour courtship dance which , among other things , includes swimming side by side and changing colors.
    They're romantic , elegant , and fragile.
    Just like love.
    They remind us that love is meant to be wild , just like the ocean.

    November again. It’s more winter than autumn…The trees are revealing their structures. There’s the catch of fire in the air. All the souls are out marauding. But there are roses, there are still roses. In the damp and the cold, on a bush that looks done, there’s a wide-open rose, still.Look at the colour of it.
