    'What is grass? ' the little mysteries in life are beautiful. God has created an amazing world, and all we can really do is try to figure it all out scientifically. I'm sure I could tell you what grass is, how it grows, and many other interesting facts. But does any of that matter? Sometimes we really just need to sit back and say, 'What is grass? Lord, why don't You tell me this time? ' (Report) Reply

    It has spirit and optimism. I don't really know what to say about it that will do it justice. Walt Whitman is something else entirely. (Report) Reply
