Slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands and goes to work.

Earn money by taking surveys! International offer!

Nothing happens unless first a dream.

If we had a little ham we could have some ham and eggs if we had some eggs.

Anger is the most impotent of passions. It effects nothing it goes about, and hurts the one who is possessed by it more than the one against whom it is directed.

Money is power, freedom, a cushion, the root of all evil, the sum of blessings.

Poetry is an echo asking a shadow dancer to be a partner.
