Quote of the Day
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles.

The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.
When Reg died and we first looked into getting a new dog, I was adamant we should pick up a mongrel from an animal-rescue shelter. It's not only that they're usually healthier and have better temperaments, they also fit with my world view - I prefer a ballpoint to a fountain pen, a barber to a hair stylist, and camping over glamping.
From such a gentle thing, from such a fountain of all delight, my every pain is born.
To find joy in work is to discover the fountain of youth.
Pearl S. Buck

William S. Burroughs
You must intensify and render continuous by repeatedly presenting with suggestive ideas and mental pictures of the feast of good things, and the flowing fountain, which awaits the successful achievement or attainment of the desires.
Claude M. Bristol

I wanted to be the next Dana Carvey. This was my ultimate goal. If I ever cut into a birthday cake and made a wish, I would wish to be on 'Saturday Night Live.'

The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
George Edward Moore
The problem is once you've written the opening paragraph and worked out how the rest of the story will go in your head, there's nothing in it for you.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
