To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

Sam put his own spin on a Bible story using Lori's stairs as props...
Mom: "Samuel David, you get down right now!"
Sam: "No, Mom...say "Zaccaeus, you come down!"
You gotta love that boy:-)
