Good Old Dog

"I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, 
a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, 
and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts."

John Steinbeck

Underneath the Apple Tree

"If an apple blossom or a ripe apple could tell its own story, 
it would be, still more than its own, 
the story of the sunshine that smiled upon it, 
of the winds that whispered to it, 
of the birds that sang around it, 
of the storms that visited it, 
and of the motherly tree that held it and fed it 
until its petals were unfolded and its form developed."

Lucy Larcom

400. Moving On

"The clock is running. 
Make the most of today. 
Time waits for no man. 
Yesterday is history. 
Tomorrow is a mystery. 
Today is a gift. 
That's why it is called the present."

Alice Morse Earle
