It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures the prosperous voyage. ~ George William Curtis

Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter.  In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.  ~ Joseph Addison

What is life?  It is the flash of a firefly in the night.  It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.  It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. ~ Crowfoot

When I first noticed this bee, I thought he was dead.  He stayed in the same position pretty much all day.  Every time I went back to check on him, he hadn’t moved.  I was about to less-than-ceremoniously flick him off into the dirt.  And then he woke up and went back to work.

I shot this Cone Flower at a really slow shutter speed to get a nice blurred effect.  Then I just monkeyed around (that’s a technical term) with the processing just for fun.  What’s it all about if you can’t have any fun??

Two-legged creatures we are supposed to love as we love ourselves.  The four-legged, also, can come to seem pretty important.  But six legs are too many from the human standpoint.  ~ Joseph W. Krutch

Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. ~ George Washington Carver

I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June. ~ L. M. Montgomery
