Other favorite quotes:
"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."
~C.S. Lewis

"Tonight this fool is half-way to Heaven and just a mile outta Hell!"
~Bruce Springsteen
