Every crowd has a silver lining.

Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won’t buy the wag of his tail.

I’m not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.
~Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes
Kirk: What would you say the odds are on our getting out of here?
Spock: Difficult to be precise, Captain. I should say approximately seven thousand eight hundred twenty four point seven to one.
Kirk: Difficult to be precise? Seven thousand eight hundred and twenty four to one?
Spock: Seven thousand eight hundred twenty four point seven to one.
Kirk: That’s a pretty close approximation.
Spock: I endeavour to be accurate.
Kirk: You do quite well.
~Star Trek: The Original Series, “Errand of Mercy“
Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove,
The linner and thrush say, “I love and I love!”
In the winter they’re silent — the wind is so strong;
What it says, I don’t know, but it sings a loud song.
But green leaves, and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving — all come back together.
But the lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings; and for ever sings he-
“I love my Love, and my Love loves me!”
(1 Cor. 13:11)
As You Love God
As you love God
With heart and mind,
Leave childish things
And thoughts behind.
“Am I to keep
My brother?” Cain
Asked, standing near
The body slain.
