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.

Sam's World

As promised...I'd like for you to meet Pinocchio Marlin. Here he is celebrating his birthday:

This last one is not part of the Pinocchio Marlin collection but it is one of my all time favorites:
(The words in the bubble are "Once upon a time...")
