When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.  But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.

Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.

[It is so hard to maintain respect for an Office when the occupant is so clearly unfit for it.  And yet, by our system, he was duly elected…  With the “help” of Crosscheck, that is… (sarcasm intended).  Oh, well, at least the crazies can’t say I’m blaming the Russians for Trump – clearly, it was the Republicans seeking to ruin America, after all.  LOL  —  KMAB]

Every day is lost in which we do not learn something useful.  Man has no nobler or more valuable possession than time.
  ―  Thomas Jefferson
There isn’t time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account.  There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that.
   —  Mark Twain
