And now, a word from Henry David Thoreau…..

Christopher Lee, actor

And now, a word from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle…..

“My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.”

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

And now, a word from B.B. King…..

And now a word from Fred Rogers……..

Leonard Nimoy
March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015

And now a word from Judy Blume……..

Judy Blume

And now a word from Charles Darwin…..

“A man’s friendships are one of the best measures of his worth.”
