Before a rain storm:
Cats will clean themselves more and meow more,
Cow and sheep will huddle together seeking comfort,
Horses “switch and twitch” and sometimes bolt,
Insects fly lower and bite more, and
Birds chirp louder.

“The only drink I like ice in is water, because you can’t water down water. I’m like that with love, too. Don’t you dare add any ice to the hot liquid loving I’m trying to pour all over you.” 

― Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. Specifically ages 18-81.



Once one seizes happiness, one should hang onto it like an octopus.

“When Mary is confused or perplexed, she spurts anger the way an octopus spurts ink, and hides in the dark cloud of it.”
