domingo rogers: Capturing Life in the Fullest

Quotes and Such

Today, the grasses hue is that of a deep vibrant green. That hue that only one sees on an overcast day. Drops of rain, on leaves and blades…a grand day to scour the Internet for quotes and such. Enjoy…

This one is too easy to harp on…hopefully something will come of it yet though! I don’t know anyone Flock-ing to use their browser, it does look promising. If the team at Flock cares to let me know when they release version 1.0 or at least a release that doesn’t take a developer to appreciate I’d love to try it out…I for one am going to try to keep tabs on these guys and girls! Anyone giving Microsoft a run for their money on IE gets my vote…for now I’ll keep enjoying Firefox.
Hadn’t seen this quote before:

Changing course from Money to Marriage –
“Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to.”
J. R. R. Tolkien, Letter to Michael Tolkien, March 1941

“Remember, that if thou marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance will neither last nor please thee one year; and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all; for the desire dieth when it is attained, and the affection perisheth when it is satisfied.”

Sir Walter Raleigh
English courtier, explorer, & historian (1552 – 1618)
And from Marriage to Fatherhood.

So, I have enjoyed two hours of reading, compiling, and composing other peoples thoughts and ideas with my own. Time worth spent? Probably not, but I understand myself a little better in my journey of life.
