Quote of the Day

Henry Ward Beecher

I think clothes hang beautifully on thin women.
You owe it to yourself to live beautifully. And I am.
'The Dark Knight,' for me, has the same problem that every other 'Batman' movie has. It's not about Batman.

He has one of the best bad guy schemes.

I turned 54 this year and I find myself feeling like I'm in a bit of a race to get down on paper the way I really feel about life - or the way it has presented to me. And because it has presented to me very beautifully, this is hard. It is technically very hard to show positive manifestations.
