A rule for life. When I had to wear a plaid skirt and uniform in school, I stayed warm with the help of lots of patterned knee socks. :)

I didn't even think of that... :))

In that case, enough cubits could make you a king regardless of how warped they were. So it is written in the Spacefarer's Guide to the Colonies.

I've been asked if this was my own quote, and it isn't. Then I realized I had added many quotes here that I found on the internet that had been posted with no accompanying credit so I posted them the way I found them. I've gone through this thread and corrected that. I have only one quote here and my name is attached.

Fun socks can be just that. Fun. If they match the outfit, more power to you. But fun socks can just make the day that much better.

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. - The Declaration of Independence
