Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity.

-- Joseph Addison

Are you in want of amusement nowadays? Then play a little at the game of getting a living. There was never anything equal to it. Do it temperately, though, and dont sweat.

Free in what I'm choosin'
Free with no excuses
Free to see the people
And to move
Free to choose my lover
Free to choose my brother
Free to need another
And I do - I need you
I'm having a ball
I'm part of the wall
No-one sees me at all
I'm asking for one dance
I know that there won't be a second chance
There's no return
I'm ready to burn
I think I'll never learn
I'm looking for direction
What I need from you is real protection
I've done my best
I've failed the test
I don't care about the rest
Won't someone set me free
Free in what I'm choosin'
Free with no excuses
Free to see the people
And to move
Free to choose my lover
Free to choose my brother
Free to need another
And I do

Heaven 17

A Wagoner was once driving a heavy load along a very muddy way. He came to a part of the road where the wheels sank half-way into the mire, and the more the horses pulled, the deeper sank the wheels. So the Wagoner threw down his whip, and knelt down and prayed to Hercules the Strong. 'O Hercules, help me in this my hour of distress.' But Hercules appeared to him, and said: 'Man, don't sprawl there. Get up and put your shoulder to the wheel.'

Moral: The gods help them that help themselves.

-- Aesop

"I want to thank my friend, Senator Bill Frist, for joining us today. You're doing a heck of a job. You cut your teeth here, right? That's where you started practicing? That's good. He married a Texas girl, I want you to know. Karyn is with us. A West Texas girl, just like me."
