When you re-read a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in yourself than there was before.

We can choose to throw stones, to stumble over them, to climb over them, or to build with them.

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

We can paint them, sketch them, photograph them, sit on them to meditate, pour water over them and watch the lovely patterns emerge.

We can use them to build walls to keep people out or pile them up to make beautiful sculpture.

When I was a child I frequently walked near a creek where there were a huge variety of stones. Some were soft and small; some where large and hard. I climbed the large rocks and used the soft stones to write poetry on the rocks.

You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt . . . and who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

Prof. Sedletz: If I gave you a dollar and your father gave you a dollar, how many dollars would you have?

Larry: One dollar.

Prof. Sedletz: You don't know your arithmetic.

Larry: You don't know my father!

Jason, thanks for posting on this thread. I used to post daily but I'm going through a rough period and haven't been posting.
Thanks for filling in for me while I'm on sabbatical.
