This started off as a father-daughter adventure, and it's gotten wonderfully out of hand...I'm going to fly till I die.Jessica Dubroff
We desire nothing so much as what we ought not to have.Publilius Syrus
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.Washington Irving
You dehumanize a man as much by returning him to nature - by making him one with rocks, vegetation, and animals - as by turning him into a machine. Both the natural and the mechanical are the opposite of that which is uniquely human. Nature is a self-made machine, more perfectly automated than any automated machine. To create something in the image of nature is to create a machine, and it was by learning the inner working of nature that man became a builder of machines. It is also obvious that when man domesticated animals and plants he acquired self-made machines for the production of food, power, and beauty.Eric Hoffer
September tries its best to have us forget summer.Bern Williams

I'm keenly aware of the Pride coming before the Fall . . . but I really do like what I've been able to do here.
