The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing

Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,

Rivers and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside--

Till I look down on the garden green,

Down on the roof so brown--

Up in the air I go flying again,

Up in the air and down!

Robert Louis Stevenson

"Socialism never took root in America because

the poor see themselves not as an exploited

proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed

millionaires."

John Steinbeck

I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly

vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am

convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.

John Steinbeck

If you're in trouble, or hurt or need - go to

the poor people. They're the only ones that'll

help - the only ones.

John Steinbeck

Many a trip continues long after movement

in time and space have ceased.

John Steinbeck

Wished I still had a swing, loved mine, it was hanging from an oak branch.

John Steinbeck is right on and I completely agree with what dogs might think, the cat thinks so anyway.

John Steinbeck says it so well, I got to re-read his books, haven't done that for some time.
