“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

– Audrey Hepburn

Neon

Neon

“Like the skyscraper, the automobile, and the motion-picture palace, neon signs once symbolized popular hopes for a new era of technological achievement and commercial abundance. From the 1920s to the 1950s, neon-lit streets pulsed with visual excitement from Vancouver to Miami.”
– Virginia Postrel

“During a trip to the Grand Canyon, we saw several signs asking visitors not to pitch coins onto the rocks, as they could be ingested by (and potentially fatal to) the birds that call the canyon home. It made me sad to see that so many people who tour the canyon are functionally illiterate.”

Like a Snake

© Jeff Jeter

“I hate and fear snakes, because if you look into the eyes of any snake you will see that it knows all and more of the mystery of man’s fall, and that it feels all the contempt that the Devil felt when Adam was evicted from Eden. Besides which its bite is generally fatal, and it twists up trouser legs.”
― Rudyard Kipling, “The Return Of Imray”
