An excerpt from I Sing the Body Electric
(Walt Whitman)

This is the female form,

A divine nimbus exhales from it from head to foot,

It attracts with fierce undeniable attraction,

I am drawn by its breath as if I were no more than a helpless vapor, all falls aside but myself and it,

Books, art, religion, time, the visible and solid earth, and what was expected of heaven or fear’d of hell, are now consumed,

Mad filaments, ungovernable shoots play out of it, the response likewise ungovernable,

Hair, bosom, hips, bend of legs, negligent falling hands all diffused, mine too diffused,

Ebb stung by the flow and flow stung by the ebb, love-flesh swelling and deliciously aching,

Limitless limpid jets of love hot and enormous, quivering jelly of love, white-blow and delirious juice,

There fuckers Vanyanka @Vanyanka Drwho10 @Drwho10 <3
This is beautiful, JenniLeigh @JenniLeigh.

Since were in an election year, I always laugh at this.

"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter." - Winston Churchill.

Then on the other side of things.

"Have you ever seen anything as big as this?" - Lyndon B. Johnson. He liked to call his dick Jumbo.

It was only when you walked away I saw you had the perfect ass.
Forgive me for not falling in love with your face or your conversation.

-- Leonard Cohen, The Energy of Slaves (1972)

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
and before the street begins,
and there the grass grows soft and white,
and there the sun burns crimson bright,
and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
to cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
and the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
to the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
and we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
for the children, they mark, and the children, they know,
the place where the sidewalk ends.

Shel Silverstein

I love Mark Twain so much that I had a difficult time choosing a quote. I think he's pretty great.

"I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

"She had a pretty gift for quotation, which was a serviceable substitute for wit."
-W. Somerset Maugham

This quote has many variations and attributions but I like this version the best.

Love him too. I'm thinking of giving "Huckleberry Finn" another go...

A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?
