Quotation of the day

Sir Walter Scott

November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear.

Dexter Kozen

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!"

Ruth E. Renkel

Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.

Humbert Wolfe

Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.

E. A. Robinson

The stillness of October gold
Went out like beauty from a face.

Anatole France

An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know.  It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't.

Margaret Lee Rumbeck

Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.

John Sinor

October is crisp days and cool nights, a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book.

Jesse Lee Bennett

Books are the compasses and telescopes and sextants and charts which other men have prepared to help us navigate the dangerous seas of human life.

Carlos Castaneda

The trick is in what one emphasizes.  We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy.  The amount of  work is the same.
