    I wanted to learn to fly, not because it was the smart thing to do in the 1920s, but because I was afraid of anything that flew.... I reasoned that if I learned to fly, I might conquer my fear of it. The remedy worked.
    (Joy Bright Hancock (1898-1986), U.S. naval officer. Lady in the Navy, ch. 3 (1972). In 1925, Hancock's husband of fifteen months had died in a plane crash.

    The Land Of Milk And Honey

    If you want your kids to grow up and be smart
    Don't give them milk and honey
    Give them a rock, seed and a cup of water
    Smash the rock into small pieces
    Pour it into the cup of water, mix it
    Place the seed in it
    That's how you can make your kids grow.

    A good friend on the net,
    We all live within the words,
    We don't feel ourselves beyond the borders,
    Your friend is your idea, and thought,
    The letters t, s that you cross
    And the I, s that you dot,
    The real friend in meat that you really meet,
    Is your smart mind, your kind heart.
