Oops There Goes...

A Fallen Friend

“One of the animals which a generous and sociable man would soonest become is a dog. A dog can have a friend; he has affections and character, he can equally enjoy the field and the fireside; he dreams, he caresses, he propitiates; he offends, and is pardoned; he stands by you in adversity; he is a good fellow.”
Leigh Hunt

Life's a Trap

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Steve Jobs
