Quote…Helen Mirren

I’m under the impression that this notion of decency is disappearing from our society where conflicts are made worse on cinema and on television, where people are nasty and cruel on the Internet and where, in general, everybody seems to be very angry.


–Helen Mirren


Brainy Quote


shallow focus photography of purple flower

The Victorian language of flowers
began with the publication of ‘Le Language des Fleurs,’
written by Charlotte de Latour and printed in Paris in 1819.
To create the book – which was a list of flowers and their meanings –
de Latour gathered references to flower symbolism
throughout poetry, ancient mythology, and even medicine.

“He wondered what kind of life it would be,
having to keep swimming all the time
to stay exactly in the same place.
Pretty similar to his own, he decided.”

Women and cats…quote

Women and cats will do as they please,
and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

I cherish my privacy,
and woe betide anyone
who tries to interfere with that.

Wolf… Quote

I woke up one morning thinking about wolves
and realized that wolf packs function as families.
Everyone has a role,
and if you act within the parameters of your role,
the whole pack succeeds,
and when that falls apart,
so does the pack.

–Jodi Picoult

Piglet… Quote

Piglet, Small Pigs, Mini, Cute, Sweet

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,”
said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh.  “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
“It’s the same thing,” he said.

–A.A. Milne

A world without huge regions of
total wilderness would be a cage;
a world without lions and tigers and
vultures and snakes and elk and
bison would be-will be-a human zoo.
a high-tech slum.

All it really takes to be happy…is a stick. Quote

Fetch, Stick, Puppy, Dog, Action, Animal

A young dog’s faith is absolute…
Dogs are notorious for hope.
Dogs believe that this morning,
this very morning,
may begin a day of fascination,
easily grander than any day in the past.
