Evening, Wisdom and Beauty



Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve. -George Bernard Shaw




The Spring exposition,
attended by
H. M. the Sun,
and his consort,
Mrs Breeze.


The Duchess of Green
adjusts her hat,
bending
to whisper,
to a tree-in-waiting
attired in pale yellow
who listens
and shrugs...

" These young trees,
will never learn....
Look
at all these
sensible greys,
deep greens,
conservative ,
woody ,
browns.
I never thought
I'd see
someone
in a flouncy white
and purple,
in the front row,
acting up like this !"

Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance? -Edgar Bergen



It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress. -Mark Twain



A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward. -Franklin D. Roosevelt



We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another...- Luciano de Crescenzo



Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then-we elected them.
-Lily



I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom. -Bob Dylan

Your quotes are just great - (plenty in there that could be tweaked to fit UK government, I'm sure!) - and your photos, as usual, are beautiful. I love the sunset.

Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a good weekend.

Have the geese come back from the south? Spring is truly here with the cherry flowers.

That last photo is a stunner. I loved the unexpected Dylan quote.

GREAT quotes and pictures as always; I hadn't heard that exact FDR quote (although I knew about his sentiments of course) -- but isn't it a terrific one for right at this exact moment in time?

So glad you're back.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
