My grandma always said that God made libraries so that people didn't have any excuse to be stupid.

When the going gets tough, the tough get a librarian.

We read to learn and to grow, to laugh, to be motivated, and to understand things we've never been exposed to. We read for strength to help us when we feel broken, discouraged or afraid. We read to find hope. We read because we're not just made up of skin and bones, and a deep need for chocolate, but we're also made up of words, words which describe our thoughts and what's hidden in our hearts.

You've got to love yourself with all your short comings, and you've got to love the world no matter how bad it gets.

When we don't have the words chocolate can speak volumes.

It was probably easier in the old days when the bad guys rode into town wearing black capes or whatever bad guys wore and the milk cows were ownded by honest people. Right off the bat, you'd know who you were dealing with. Now everybody dresses alike.
