“How do I feel today? I feel as unfit as an unfiddle,
And it is the result of a certain turbulence in the mind and an uncertain burbulence in the middle.
What was it, anyway, that angry thing that flew at me?
I am unused to banshees crying Boo at me.
Your wife can’t be a banshee—
Or can she?”

― Ogden Nash, Private Dining-room and Other New Verses

And I Jack, the Pumpkin King, have grown so tired of the same old thing…”

Nah mind how pumpkin vine run, he must dry up one day.

Every life comes to an end sooner or later.

I note the obvious differences between each sort and type, but we are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike. Maya Angelou

Until you tire your own shoulders (by carrying his children on it), you won’t make a stranger’s son or brother your own. To firmly attach a stranger to yourself, you must toil hard in his behalf first.

There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience (French)

008

"Goodbye," said I to my conscience,
"Goodbye for aye and aye,"
As I pushed her from me roughly
And turned my face away;
And conscience smitten sorely
Returned not from that day.
But a time came when my spirit
Grew weary of its pace:
And I cried, "Come back, my conscience,
For I long to see thy face."
But conscience said, "I cannot,
Remorse sits in my place."—Selected.
